Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC), Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit Program (OSTC) and Educational Improvement Organization (EIO) Programs 


The State of PA created the opportunity for individuals to receive the same 90% PA income tax credits as corporations. Yes, this means you, too, can receive a 90% PA income tax credit by providing much-needed scholarships for students at approved schools such as The Neighborhood Academy.

We are committed to ensuring that our donors join the hundreds of individuals throughout the State of PA who love this opportunity to turn tax dollars into scholarships.

For Individuals & Business Owners: 

Organizations Like the Central PA Scholarship Fund can provide tax credits to individuals and businesses through a Special Purpose Entity.

For Businesses:

If you pay taxes in Pennsylvania you can take advantage of the Educational Improvement Tax Credit or Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit programs offered by the State to impact education. Any qualifying business can participate, so please share this information with any colleagues who may want to receive tax credits while supporting The Neighborhood Academy. Applying is easy, but there is a cap on funding, and applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications for businesses in the middle of a two-year commitment and returning donors will be accepted starting May 15th. New applications will be accepted beginning in July. Depending on your business structure, you may also participate through the Central PA Scholarship Fund.  Please consult your tax professional on how these programs may impact your business.
