Via  How You Can Help Via
 

EITC and OSTC Tax Credit Program


The Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) and Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit Program (OSTC) are administered by the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED). Tax credits are awarded to businesses that make contributions to programs like Lehigh Children's Academy, a service of Via of the Lehigh Valley.

Tax Credits
Tax credits equal 75% of contribution up to $750,000/year. Can increase to 90% if business agrees to provide same amount for two consecutive years. For contributions to EITC Pre-Kindergarten Scholarship Organizations, a business receives tax credit equal to 100% of first $10,000 and up to 90% of the remaining amount up to$200,000. Via's greatest need is in the EITC Pre-Kindergarten program.
