House Bill 33: EdChoice Scholarship Update

In July, Governor Mike DeWine and the state legislature passed HB33, Ohio’s biennial budget. This landmark legislation includes universal school choice, making ALL Ohio Kindergarten through 12th grade students now eligible for a full or partial EdChoice Expansion scholarship for the 2023-2024 school year.

This new legislation includes:

  • All Ohio families with an income up to 450% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) are now eligible for an EdChoice Expansion Scholarship for KDG-12 grade students.
  • All Ohio families with an income greater than 450% of the Federal Poverty Level will qualify for a reduced EdChoice Expansion Scholarship for KDG-12 grade students based on their income.
  • Income tables and tiered scholarship amounts can be found below23-24 Universal EdChoice Expansion by 2023 Income(AGI) and family size

The Mission of the Immaculate Heart of Mary School is to provide a rigorous Christian education rooted in the gospel values of Jesus Christ.  Moreover, Immaculate Heart of Mary parish is committed to making that education accessible and affordable. To that end, IHM provides tuition assistance and financial aid for those who qualify. 

The State of Ohio provides tuition vouchers for public students to attend private schools through Ohio’s Educational Choice (EdChoice) assistance program for qualified applicants. A commission of dedicated parishioners and the school administration spent time researching the program and developed recommendations about the acceptance and implementation of EdChoice assistance.  After careful consideration, the commission recommended that IHM begin accepting EdChoice Scholarships for the 2020-2021 school year.
