Bishop Matano’s letter on Education Tax Credit

February 19, 2015

Dear Parents, Teachers, Friends and Supporters of our children in Catholic Schools:

I write to inform you of a very positive development in our advocacy efforts to enact the state Education Tax Credit proposal and, once again, to seek your help.

Because so many of you have spoken our on this issue, Governor Cuomo has included our Education Tax Credit proposal as part of his 2015-16 budget recommendations. If enacted, his proposal will provide an additional $50 million in scholarships to assist tuition-paying families with the education of their children. the bill also provides an equal level of support to public schools.
