LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Archdiocese of Louisville is seeking to expand its student enrollment by increasing the amount of tuition assistance available to needy families.

The archdiocese unveiled a plan on Thursday for parishes to contribute to a voucher program that will amount to more than $1 million in new tuition help.

Another feature will be a $1,000 tuition discount for families whose household income is less than 200 percent of the poverty level. The archdiocese says that option will be available to families of any faith.

The Catholic Education Foundation, which raises money for tuition assistance, also announced a new fundraising goal of $2 million. The foundation awarded nearly $1.7 million to 1,476 students in the current year.

The archdiocese includes 46 schools with more than 19,300 students in six counties.
