Free Tax Return Filing

Community Action runs an extraordinarily successful VITA program, working closely with the IRS, United Way, AARP, Age Well, Champlain College, St. Michael’s College, local translators and the VT State Tax Department.

VITA is a federally funded program that offers free tax help for low-to-moderate income taxpayers, elderly taxpayers and military personnel and their families. Students from Champlain College and St. Michael’s College are granted college credits for participation in the program.

Last year, more than $2.1 million in federal and state refunds and credits was returned to the Vermont community as a result of volunteer tax preparers working with individuals and families at Chittenden, Addison and Franklin/Grand Isle Community Action.

Join the Alliance – Fight for Funding!

“Vermont’s Child Care Financial Assistance Program (CCFAP) is an important resource that helps Vermont families access and afford quality early care and learning programs. “
The state’s Child Care Financial Assistance Program (CCFAP) has been underfunded for decades and is no longer working as intended: providers receive reimbursement rates that are lower than their costs to provide child care, the current benefit scale includes multiple cliffs, and more families are in need of financial support. In spite of recent, small gains in funding for CCFAP, thanks to advocacy by the Alliance CCFAP work group, there is still a long way to go to make the program work for children, families, and child care providers.

For more information on the Child Care Financial Assistance Program, visit the websites of Let’s Grow KidsVermont Association for the Education of Young Children, and Vermont Child Care Providers Association, all of which are members of the Vermont Early Childhood Advocacy Alliance.
