Illinois Tax Credit Scholarship  

Illinois “Invest in Kids Act” provides scholarship opportunities to nonpublic schools for qualifying families with students in grades K-12. The scholarships offered through this program are needs-based and could cover up to 100 percent of tuition and eligible fees and are needs-based. See the Empower Illinois website to determine if your family qualifies.
Please note that all HFCA families interested in tuition assistance must first determine if their family is eligible for a Tax Credit Scholarship before applying for tuition assistance through HFCA/FACTS. 
Prior scholarship recipients or those who have been on a waitlist must reapply annually. In many instances, families will be awarded more assistance through the Tax Credit Scholarship program than through HFCA's tuition assistance.

Applications for 2022-2023 tax credit scholarships are now open. Like last year, the application process includes two steps: a reservation and an application. The empower Illinois' tax credit scholarship application for the upcoming school year opened in January and will remain open through much of the year. There are two parts of the application process--the reservation and application.
