In 2018, tax credit scholarship opponents announced a 50 percent cut and premature phase out of the Invest in Kids Act—threatening more than 46,000 kids in line for a scholarship. This jeopardized all 7,178 scholarship recipients at the time, and immediately denied at least 742 current recipients their chance to receive the education they deserve. By May 2019, the Invest in Kids Act was the only proposed cut in the entire multibillion-dollar state budget. One Chance Illinois Action joined the #SaveMyScholarship campaign to protect the Invest in Kids Act from those threats. Thanks to the efforts of many students, parents, grandparents, foster parents, teachers, school leaders, and community leaders we won the fight to save the program.
