MARYLAND

The Maryland 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).

MARYLAND'S SCHOOL CHOICE PROGRAMS:

SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR PRIVATE SCHOOL CHOICE IN MARYLAND!

Voucher Program - Broadening Options and Opportunities for Students Today (BOOST)

STUDENT ELIGIBILITY

  • Family income must qualify for the free or reduced lunch program ($49,250 for a family of four in 2021-22).

  • An appointed BOOST Advisory Board establishes categories of eligible applicants ranked by family income by the Maryland State Department of Education and determines award amounts for categories of eligible students who will receive a scholarship; priority is given to students who received a scholarship the preceding year and to students who are transferring from a public to a nonpublic school.

AFC BOOTS ON THE GROUND

Our team focuses its time and resources on supporting state-level efforts to provide low-income and middle-income families with access to great schools through private school choice.
