Recent changes in the Nevada law for AB-165, we may now accept applications from new students to the program. We do not accept emailed or paper applications. Please read the information below:
The recently concluded 80th session of the Nevada legislature resulted in three major changes to the Nevada Opportunity Scholarship program.
AB 458 amended NRS 363B.119 to remove the 110% annual increase in tax credits. As a result, the new annual maximum tax credit will hold steady at $6,655,000 per year. The $6.65 million tax credit cap is now established in perpetuity or until it is amended in a future legislative session.
In accordance with the amendment made to NRS 363A.130 through the passage of SB 551, the legislature approved an additional $4,745,000 in tax credits per year of the biennium, adding a total of $9,490,000 to the maximum tax credits for the Opportunity Scholarship program through June 30, 2021. The addition of this funding is intended to ensure current recipients do not lose their scholarships within the next two years.
The total maximum tax credits allowed per year of the biennium is $11,400,000.
The legislature also amended NRS 388D.270 through the passage of SB 551. This amendment restricts Scholarship Granting Organizations (SGOs) from awarding scholarships to new students, including siblings of current scholarship recipients, effective July 1, 2019 unless the scholarship organization reasonably expects to be able to provide a grant for the new student in at least the same amount for each school year until the students graduates from high school (Senate Bill 551 2019 s 30.75). This restriction applies to all scholarship funding, including the $6,655,000 and the additional $4,745,000.
