CEP Joins EWTN Radio to Discuss 529 Expansion

CEP's Director of Policy and Outreach, Greg Dolan, joined EWTN's Morning Glory radio show on Tuesday, June 19 to discuss the opportunities for Catholic school parents to use 529 accounts to pay for K-12 tuition. 

A recent survey by SavingForCollege found that fewer than 1-in-5 parents plan use a 529 account to pay for K-12 tuition. In the 17 states (see our chart) where the state recognizes K-12 tuition as an allowable expense and a deduction exists for contributing to a 529 plan, parents could be leaving money on the table.

At a time when many parents struggle to cover the costs of tuition, the expansion of 529 accounts could be the difference in affording a Catholic education.
