Financial Stability - Families & Individuals:


 

 

 


 

Financial Stability for Hampden County:

We are committed to empowering those living with economic instability by securing opportunities to achieve financial independence, career success and permanent affordable housing.

Free Tax Assistance (VITA Program):

UWPV works with local organizations to support free tax assistance services to residents of the region. The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is provided by Springfield Partners for Community Action and the Valley Opportunity Council with funding support by UWPV. Eligible families may be available for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) which helps bring needed funds back to these households and to the region. For more information about the VITA program, click here.

2012 - 2013  Income Areas Grantmaking:
  • Enable economically insecure individuals and families facing housing instability to maintain housing e.g. foreclosure prevention, tenant education, etc
  • Increase individual and family income through participation in income support programs such as EITC, SNAP benefits, etc.
  • Increase in the number of households that use mainstream banking and other financial services aimed at strengthening financial management practices
  • Increase in participation in ESOL, GED, pre-vocational or other trainings that provide greater opportunities for personal advancement and financial stability
