How Tax Credits Help Families In Need
Children are eligible for scholarships if the household income is less than $85,000 + $15,608 for each child in the family. For example, a family with one child must have an income below $100,608 whereas a family with three children must have an income below $131,824. The figures will increase in future years for inflation.
