On March 27, 2023, Governor Ron DeSantis signed into law House Bill (HB) 1, which expands available school choice options for all students in Florida. The bill eliminates financial eligibility restrictions in the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship Program while still prioritizing awards to students with household incomes that do not exceed 185 percent of the federal poverty level and incorporating a second priority to award scholarships to students who live in households with incomes between 185 percent of the federal poverty level and 400 percent of the federal poverty level.

In addition, for the 2023-24 school year, the bill creates a new opportunity for up to 20,000 Florida students not enrolled full time in a public or private school to participate in the scholarship through a parent-directed Personalized Education Program. Details on this opportunity will be shared as the program is developed.

With these expansions along with the many other existing school choice options, Florida is empowering every family and every child to achieve their educational goals.

To apply for the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship, contact an eligible scholarship funding organization directly.
