Confronting Financial Insecurity

Partner: Connecticut Association for Human Services (CAHS)

Project Details

The Connecticut Association for Human Services (CAHS)’s mission is to end poverty and engage, equip and empower all families in CT to build a secure future. COVID-19 has exacerbated already perilous conditions for CT’s financially insecure populations.  Through its Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, the CAHS has pivoted from traditional in-person tax preparation to a novel and free IRS-approved virtual solution.  VITA’s virtual solution provides a means of collecting Earned Income Tax Credits and Economic Impact Payments for severe low-to-moderate income families.
