About Taxpayer Savings Grants

• It is a proposal before the Texas Legislature that is voluntary and will save Texas taxpayers over $2 billion in the first two years.

• Parents can choose to transfer their child from a public school to a private school and use a Taxpayer Savings Grant to help pay the tuition.

• The state saves an average of $3,429 for each student who voluntarily takes the grant.

• This voluntary program decreases school expenses to help cover our school budget shortfalls thereby leaving more money on a per student basis in the system.

• All parents with children in public school now are eligible to participate. If they voluntarily choose to participate they will provide a savings to the state of $3,429.
