Accessible Banking and Financial Empowerment
Accessibility to a lower-risk bank account is a large issue in financial freedom and stability. LUL Director of Housing and Financial Empowerment, Christie McCravy, recently served on a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau panel to discuss this issue and advocate for better access to the resources that can increase opportunities for financial freedom in the community. An excerpt from a recent Courier Journal Article on the hearing said,
McCravy_Christie
"Christie McCravy, Director of the Louisville Urban League's Center for Housing and Financial Empowerment, said that millions of dollars are stripped from the pockets of low- and moderate-income residents. Their communities also take a hit because institutions track data on income and other financial stability measures by zip code and census tracts."

Volunteer Tax Preparers Wanted

 

The VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) Program is still seeing volunteers to provide tax preparation services for the community!

The VITA Program offers free tax help to people with low-to-moderate income (generally, $45,000 and below) who cannot prepare their own federal and state tax returns.

The assistance, available through the Urban League, is a result of its partnership with Louisville Asset Building Coalition and the Louisville Urban League Guild. Volunteers who are not alredy certified to prepare taxes, will be provided with the necessary training for the position of tax preparation. Visit the link to apply!
