Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit Program (OSTC - Previously Known As EITC 2.0)

Overview


For Parents, Students and Opportunity Scholarship Organizations
The program provides tax credits to eligible businesses contributing to an Opportunity Scholarship Organization. Business contributions are then used by Opportunity Scholarship Organizations to provide tuition assistance in the form of scholarships to eligible students residing within the boundaries of a low-achieving school to attend another public school outside of their district or nonpublic school. A low-achieving school is defined as a public elementary or secondary school ranking in the bottom 15 percent of their designation as an elementary or secondary school based upon combined math and reading Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) scores.
Students who live within the attendance boundaries of a low-achieving school, as determined by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, are eligible to receive a scholarship if their household’s annual income is no greater than $75,000 plus $15,000 for each dependent member of the household. For the 2014-15 school year, the maximum scholarship award available to non-special education students is $8,500 and the maximum for a special education student is $15,000.
