Maryland lawmakers approve funding for BOOST program
The Maryland Catholic Conference (MCC) has hailed as “a big win for families” the $9 million Maryland lawmakers have budgeted for the state’s BOOST (Broadening Options and Opportunities for Students Today) Scholarship program.
Originally, Maryland Gov. Wes Moore proposed slashing funding for the BOOST program by 20 percent, earmarking $8 million for the program instead of $10 million. His budget package also included language that would have phased out the program over the next few years.
