Buckeye Institute-Inspired Improvements to ACE Program Signed into Law

Jan 06, 2023

Columbus, OH – Greg R. Lawson, a research fellow at The Buckeye Institute, commented after Governor Mike DeWine signed Buckeye Institute-inspired improvements to the Ohio Afterschool Child Enrichment (ACE) program, included in Ohio House Bill 45, into law.

“In light of the historic learning loss suffered during the pandemic, the need to get parents and students education resources is critical. Thanks to Ohio lawmakers, House Bill 45 included Buckeye Institute-inspired improvements to the Afterschool Child Enrichment (ACE) education savings account program to help families pay for vital education resources. 

“By increasing the income eligibility threshold for students and the amount in individual ACE accounts to $1,000, the reforms Governor DeWine signed into law will make it easier for families to access indispensable education resources.”
