About the Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program
Established in 2001, the Educational Improvement Tax Credit program provides incentives to businesses and non-profit entities for the purpose of developing and funding innovative educational programs. Innovative educational programs are defined as programs that are not part of the regular academic program of a public school but that enhance the curriculum or academic program of the public school. Funds may also be used to provide tuition to eligible students to attend a school participating in the program.
