As of 4-12-18 DCED guidelines allow a parent with a child with 2017 verified income less than $93,645 to apply for an EITC scholarship for their child. For each additional dependent child on the parents tax return living in the household an additional $15,608 of income is allowed. For example two dependent children would allow the family to make less than $109,253 and qualify for EITC scholarship application.
Children with disabilities are allowed higher family income and have a different formula for calculating maximum family income.
PreK EITC and OSTC scholarship applications use the same income limits. OSTC students must live in a designated low achieving public school district.
