EDUCATION

Research shows preschool-age years are critical for cognitive and social development, laying a foundation for success in college, work and life. To effectively reduce the high school dropout rate, we must begin by improving access to quality and affordable child care and early childhood education. Funding for child care, Head Start, and Early Head Start is at immediate risk for deep budget cuts. With your help, we can show a broad base of national, state, and local support for investments in early childhood. Recognizing the community impact, United Way of Adams County is a lead agency in efforts promoting quality early learning. Since 2003, UWAC has managed Ready to Learn, an early childhood education initiative.. CONTACT YOUR LOCAL LEGISLATURES ABOUT EARLY CHILD EDUCATION.

INCOME

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program offers tax help, free of charge, to middle and low-income individuals and married couples. VITA helps ensure financial stability by maximizing use of existing tax code benefits and incentives, such as the Earned Income Tax Credit. Certified volunteers sponsored by various nonprofit groups,United Way of Adams County, are trained to prepare basic tax returns to our community. Legislation establishing a Community Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Matching Program (VITA grant program) is expected to be re-introduced in the 112th Congress. Join the United Way’s efforts to advocate for passage of the bill. CONTACT YOUR LOCAL LEGISLATURES IN SUPPORT OF TAX ASSISTANCE FOR MIDDLE AND LOW-INCOME FAMILIES
