ECENC Program

The Educational Credit for Exceptional Needs Children (ECENC) program was created by the SC General Assembly (Act 247, signed into law on May 18, 2018) to provide grants and parental tax credit to eligible students attending approved schools. 


The Education Oversight Committee (EOC) is charged within the law with determining if an independent school meets the eligibility requirements for participation in the ECENC program.  For questions about student eligibility, scholarship funding and tax credits, the public may access information about the ECENC program at ExceptionalSC.org.
