New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu signed a bill Tuesday to expand the state’s school choice program.
Education Freedom Accounts were first passed by the New Hampshire Legislature in June 2021. Grants from the program, with an average worth of $4,857, help cover educational expenses including private school tuition, tutoring, and online learning.
The new law, HB 367, expands eligibility from children in households up to 300% of the federal poverty line to 350%.
In a press release, Sununu celebrated the expansion.
“New Hampshire funds students – not systems,” said Governor Chris Sununu. “Our Education Freedom Accounts legislation has been a tremendous success, and we are committed to further expanding eligibility for students who need it most.
“New Hampshire will always prioritize the success of our kids, especially those without the financial resources necessary to attend a school that fits their path.”
