OLMC parents, as you know, the School Choice Now Act would provide emergency funding to scholarship organizations in each state and provide permanent federal tax credits for contributions to scholarship granting organizations. You know how critical this is to our Catholic school families and future of our schools, please consider sharing your voice!
Dear Families, Friends, and Supporters:
The COVID-19 crisis has put Catholic schools throughout the U.S., including those in the Newark Archdiocese at serious risk of not re-opening in the fall and being permanently closed.
Thanks to your recent advocacy, proposed legislation entitled Alexander-Scott “School Choice Now Act” has been introduced that will give emergency funding to scholarship organizations in each state and provide permanent federal tax credits for contributions to scholarship granting organizations.
Please ask our US Senators to include the School Choice Now Act in the next COVID relief package.
