Strengthening Native American Communities & Economies
With funding from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, First Nations is conducting research on successful Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites serving reservation communities, and we have published a practitioner's guide and are providing assistance with VITA site implementation. VITA sites are critical to helping Native communities because they provide a safe alternative to high-fee tax preparation and predatory lending. Research is also being conducted to help policy makers looking to legally limit the impact of predatory lenders.
