Governor Cuomo and the lawmakers are working to finalize the state budget by the end of March. While they are considering our proposal to generate $150 million in scholarships to help families pay tuition, lobbyists from the public schools teachers' unions are urging lawmakers to fund only public schools. Tuition-paying families need and deserve their fair share.
Without your help, this legislation may not be enacted!
Please take a moment to send a message to the Governor and your elected state legislators urging them to enact the Education Investment Tax Credit proposal this year.
Thanks so much for your help.

Catholic School Funding Increased.
Thank Your Elected Officials Today!
Thanks to you and the roughly 40,000 e-mails that were sent in from the Catholic Action Network, Catholic schools will see an increase in funding in the 2013-14 state budget. Lawmakers have printed the final bills that will make up the state’s $135 billion budget – expected to be approved before March 29. Included in the budget is a nearly $14 million increase in funding for mandated services reimbursement.
Moreover, lawmakers provide $4.5 million in a new funding stream to our schools for safety equipment – in response to the horrific school shootings that have occurred around the country.
Just as it was important to advocate for these funds, it is equally important that you thank the governor and your legislative representatives for the increased funding. Please take action right now by clicking the Take Action link below. Your message will automatically be sent to your correct legislators.
