Call or Email you State Senator! Please contact your State Senator and ask him to support HB217, a bill that would increase the annual cap on tax credits that are donated to GRACE Scholars and other SSO’s. Passage of this bill would lead to more tuition assistance to deserving students wanting to receive a Catholic Education through the GRACE Scholars Program.  To help, please call and email Senators:
