WHY BECOME AN ADVOCATE FOR THE QZAB PROGRAM?
The QZAB program is one of the few federal programs targeting disadvantaged schools. It is very easy to set up and allow school districts to borrow money for vital needs while building a long term partnership to set up a QZAB academy with a nonprofit/business partner.
With ¾ of the states in deficit adding up to $100 billion dollars, the need to borrow money at zero interest is critical if high poverty schools are not to fall further behind. NEF can show you how to transform a QZAB loan into a QZAB bond. Email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The QZAB program allows schools to borrow without interest, the cost of any project is halved.
