What connections exist between VITA and local financial stability efforts, to help taxpayers beyond tax refunds — to give them the knowledge and motivation to use that money (and all money they earn) in a financially responsible way? And keep themselves out of the grip of predatory lenders?

@Tish - Great questions!!! In Greenville, we are working to bring some of our financial stability partners together to give taxpayers better resources for saving, coaching, and budgeting. We know it's going to be an important piece for the upcoming season due the pandemic.
