VITA Grant 2014


The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Grant provides grants to partner organizations to achieve the following program objectives: • Enable the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program to extend services to underserved populations in hardest-to-reach areas, both urban and non-urban; • Increase the capacity to file federal returns electronically; • Heighten quality control; • Enhance training of volunteers; and • Improve significantly the accuracy rate of federal returns prepared at VITA sites. The VITA Grant program supplements the work already being done in the VITA Program by providing support to help organizations grow their existing programs. Although we may occasionally award an organization that has no experience with the VITA program, most recipients have extensive experience with the program. Interested applicants are encouraged to work in the program to gain experience prior to applying for a grant. We found that experienced organizations are more likely to successfully deliver the objectives of the grant.
