What is EITC?
The Education Improvement Tax Credit program, administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Community & Economic Development, enables companies to redirect PA state tax dollars from Harrisburg to support local education. It is funded when businesses that owe certain types of state taxes make donations to education and then receive 75% - 100% of their donation subtracted from their Pennsylvania state tax bill. Businesses may apply to direct their donations to any of the three aspects of EITC:
- Preschool children (ages 3-5 from low to moderate income families) receive tuition assistance
- K-12 students (private or public) receive grants for tuition or school related costs, including vocational training and dual-enrollment.
- Education Improvement programs provide curriculum enhancement to local public schools.
