Empower Illinois Tax Credit Information

2021 Reservation Night

As a reminder, reservations for a 2021-2022 Empower Illinois tax credit scholarship will open on Wednesday, January 13, 2021.

Like last year, the application process will include two steps: a reservation and an application.

Families should visit Empowerillinois.org to find the reservation page link. Families do not make their tax credit scholarship reservations by logging into their EmpowerXChange portal.

The reservation form will be available at 6:30pm to give families time to enter their information before submission at 7pm. More information about preparing for reservation night can be found on our website under, "How Do I Apply."

Families who have previously completed a tax credit scholarship application through the EmpowerXChange portal should use the same email address when making their reservation.

2021-2022 Application

The 2021-2022 scholarship application will be available on Friday, January 15. Families who have completed their reservation by noon on Thursday, January 14 will receive an email from Empower Illinois on Friday morning notifying them the application is live. If families complete their reservation after noon on Thursday, they will receive their invitation to complete the application within 48 hours.
