|Effective January 1, 2018 families may use 529 education savings plans for K12 tuition at private schools. We have created the fact sheet below - please share widely! It's important to get this news out to all Catholics, not just school parents. Grandparents, Godparents, Aunts/Uncles all can help fund a 529 and help send a child to Catholic school. Please post, share, print, email and insert in your parish bulletin!
However, as you can expect, there has been significant push back from parental choice opponents at the state level. Please see this "Next Steps" document for school and policy leaders with recommendations on how to assess and respond to attacks on the 529 Expansion. Please use this guide as a tool to create your own state-specific plan!
Finally, to get a feel for how opponents are responding, here is a list of news articles from across the country, I will continue to add more to this list!
