Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC)


In order to support the families with the high cost traditionally associated with high quality child care and preschool programs, the United Way of York County is accepting contributions from businesses which will specifically go towards scholarships for pre-kindergarten students into high quality programs.  The United Way has partnered with early learning centers in York County which are eligible to accept the scholarship dollars (see the list of approved centers below).  For further information and to find out if your family qualifies for assistance in providing high quality opportunities for your child, please contact Sara Gray-Bradley, Director of Education Initiatives at (717) 771-3808.
