KENTUCKY

The Kentucky Federation for Children seeks to empower families, especially lower-income families, with the freedom to choose the best K-12 education for their children. We are a project of the American Federation for Children (AFC).

KENTUCKY'S SCHOOL CHOICE PROGRAMS:

SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR PRIVATE SCHOOL CHOICE IN KENTUCKY!

Education Savings Account - Education Opportunity Account

STUDENT ELIGIBILITY

  • Students must come from families earning no more than 175% of the amount required to be eligible to receive free or reduced price lunch (FRL) ($85,794 for a family of four in 2021–22).
     
  • Previous Education Opportunity Account (EOA) recipients and siblings of EOA recipients are also eligible.

  • If a student’s family’s household income rises over 250% of the income threshold for the federal reduced-price lunch program ($122,563 for a family of four in 2021-22), that student is ineligible to receive further state deposits in their EOA. Only families residing in counties with populations over 90,000 may use EOA funds for nonpublic school tuition.
