Event Description

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the IRS sponsored Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites were forced to shut down in early March leaving low-income taxpayers without their standard way of filing tax returns. Operating in public spaces like libraries, community centers, and colleges, nearly 60 VITA sites were closed statewide.

Eligible filers have been receiving an average of $2500 per year through the poverty-fighting Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) program. In 2020, many more are eligible to receive $1200 through the stimulus checks being mailed out by the IRS, even if they never filed a tax return! These returns act as critical supports that will pay rent, food, and other basic needs during these desperate times.

In this webinar, you’ll learn about:

-the new virtual VITA sites that are opening the door to these benefits
-what this means for CT and the underserved in our State
-the new, but complicated, CT Pandemic Unemployment Assistance benefits that applicants may be finding difficult to obtain.
-how you or your organization can help low-income families maximize these benefits before the July 15, 2020 deadline.

What Does Dr. MLK, Jr. Mean to You?

Each month, we pose a question to the OneLISC family, and share the responses reflecting our diverse range of voices and backgrounds. To mark Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s 92nd birthday, this month’s Reflections from the Field consider his life and work and his legacy today. The reflections register anger and dismay and exhaustion, but also hope, power and a commitment to keep working, to keep exerting good, strong pressure to shape our moral universe.

These Nonprofits Give Small Businesses What They Need to Survive and Thrive

So much goes into the relationship between small businesses and the nonprofit business development organizations (BDOs) that are dedicated to supporting them and helping them grow. The three BDOs profiled here, longtime LISC partners, have gone above and beyond to help entrepreneurs survive the COVID-19 pandemic. They know that the wellbeing of small businesses means jobs preserved, goods and services are accessible to the community, and local economies have a better chance of weathering the pandemic-borne recession.
