LA CA$H Coalition - Creating Assets, Savings, and Hope
The Lewiston-Auburn CA$H Coalition was established as a multi-partner coalition by the City of Lewiston, Maine, in 2003. It is one of ten coalitions statewide that prepares taxes free of charge for low-to-moderate income individuals. Community partners and volunteers also advocate "creating assets, savings, and hope" by providing resource connections for individuals/families to achieve long-term financial stability. The Coalition also promotes the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), a credit that can render a tremendous boost to household budgets.
In addition, since the 2004 tax season, the Coalition has facilitated free tax preparation by IRS tax law certified volunteers for low-to-moderate-income workers within the Lewiston-Auburn area and connected residents with asset-building opportunities. We also offer FREE financial check-ups.
