Choice Vouchers

Significant changes were made to the Indiana voucher program in 2021, expanding the program to meet more family’s needs. The household income limits were increased to 300% of the federal free/reduced lunch program which significantly increased household income limits for participation in the Voucher and SGO programs. It also increased ALL voucher awards to the highest level of 90% and eliminates the smaller 50% and 70% awards.
