Paying for private school is going to get a little easier for some families in our area.

The Bridge Educational Foundation announced Thursday the distribution of scholarships totaling more than $36,000.

The money is given through businesses involved in the Educational Improvement Tax Credit Scholarship program.

Income-eligible families will receive the scholarships to help them defray the cost of tuition for schools like Allentown Central Catholic High School and Lehigh Children's Academy.
