Short Description
This program will provide free tax preparation services to Illinois Department of Human Service customers and other low income individuals.

This program will conduct marketing and outreach activities to targeted underserved communities. This will be accomplished in part through a grant program to community agencies in underserved areas including Bellville/East St. Louis as well as Marion.

This program will award approximately $40,000 and manage all aspects of the grant solicitation, award, and implementation and evaluation process. These sub-grants would come from this program's Economic Progress funds from the Illinois Department of Human Services.

Along with free tax preparation services, customers will receive an education around tax credits such as the State and Federal Earned Income Tax Credits (EITC).

Information regarding free tax preparation will be made available to customers via the Tax Help and EITC flyers.

This program is expected to provide free tax preparation services to 22,000 taxpayers with income below 200% of the federal poverty level during the contract period (July 1, through June 30).
