In 2001, the Pennsylvania legislature established the Educational Improvement Tax Credit program administered by the Department of Community and Economic Development. The tuition tax credit program gives tax credits to corporations that make contributions to scholarship organizations (SO) or educational improvement organizations (EIO). SOs provide students with vouchers that can be used at private and religious schools; EIOs funnel corporate contributions to public schools to support innovative educational programs.
