This week, Maryland's Senate Budget & Taxation Committee will vote on the BOOST Scholarship program for the coming fiscal year. The House Appropriations Committee will vote on the issue very soon.
Unfortunately, there are some legislators in the Maryland General Assembly who do not support BOOST and want to see its funding cut, if not eliminated entirely.
The Committees will vote on whether to maintain the program, as well as the funding, which is proposed at $10 million for next school year.
We ask that you please take a few minutes right now to send a message to the legislators who serve on these committees, asking their support of BOOST and to provide the $10 million that BOOST families deserve.

BOOST students are thriving in school, the achievement gap is closing, and families who would not otherwise be able to afford to send their child to a Catholic or other nonpublic school are able to use BOOST to provide their children with the education that best fits their needs.
Sadly, we know that if funding for BOOST is cut, students who are thriving thanks to BOOST could lose their scholarships. So we are asking you to take the time to send a message to these legislators today and ask them to vote for $10 million for BOOST.
Thank you for being a voice for the thousands of BOOST recipients and for taking the time today to ask Maryland lawmakers to provide more funding to this vital program so even more families can take part.
