The State of New Hampshire has created an exciting new Education Freedom Accounts (EFA) program to help expand educational opportunities for New Hampshire children. Beginning with the 2021-22 school year, eligible New Hampshire families earning up to 300% of the poverty line can direct part of their child’s state education funding to pay for tuition at the school of their choice, tutoring, online learning programs, educational supplies, internet connectivity, and other educational expenses.
Children’s Scholarship Fund (CSF) has been authorized by the State of New Hampshire to administer these accounts for the 2021-22 school year.
Applications for the EFA program for the 2021-22 school year are now open. An application is considered complete once the online application is submitted and all of the supporting documents, attestations, and certifications have been verified by CSF.
