Ask the NJ Legislature to Restore Nonpublic School Funding

 

The Governor's Budget for Fiscal Year 2019 (2018-2019 school year) cut the ceiling for nonpublic school transportation from $1,000 to $884.00.  Last year, the Legislature increased that ceiling to $1,000 per pupil.  Restoring this transportation ceiling to $1,000 is our top priority.
 
Also, the funding for Nonpublic School Nursing and Technology accounts that were provided by the Legislature for the 2017-2018 school year (a total of $3.8 million) were cut by Governor Murphy in the proposed FY 2019 State Budget.
 
If your state legislators are on one of the Budget Committees, please ask them to restore the ceiling for nonpublic school transportation to last year's amount of $1,000, and restore the amount for nursing and technology to at least the amounts of the 2017-2018 school year. If your state legislators are not on one of the Budget Committees, ask your legislators to encourage their colleagues on the Budget Committees to restore the transportation ceiling to $1,000 and to restore the amount for nursing and technology to at least to the amounts of the 2017-2018 school.

 

WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP

 

These losses directly affect Catholic School children and mean that Catholic School will have to do more with less or go without next year.

 

Meanwhile public school aid has been increased by $283 MILLION!

 

Your voice can and will make a difference in the budget!

 

Use the Voter Voice system of the NJ Catholic Conference to tell Trenton to restore these budget cuts.
