(Updated 7-19-23) LB753 and SGO Information
The Archdiocese of Omaha has created a webpage to help educate Catholics in northeast Nebraska about the issue.
Please read the linked letter from Vickie Kauffold, Superintendent of Schools at the Archdiocese of Omaha regarding school choice legislation (LB753, the Opportunity Scholarships Act) and information about scholarship granting organization (SGO). The Opportunity Scholarships Act provides increased scholarship opportunities through a state income tax credit. Taxpayers can claim this tax credit by making financial contributions to an SGO which are authorized by LB753. State income tax credits can be claimed starting on January 1, 2024, with scholarships being distributed for the 2024-25 school year.
