U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy (La.) introduced the Educational Choice for Children Act (ECCA). This bill would help over 1 million students and complement the work states are already doing to support choice by providing up to $10 billion in annual tax credits for corporate and individual donations to non-profit Scholarship Granting Organizations.
The ECCA would help families with multiple uses – special needs services, addressing learning loss, private school tuition, and career and technical education. Students in any elementary or secondary education setting would be eligible to receive a scholarship, provided they reside in households with incomes at or below 300 percent of the median income level in their area.
