Disability Initiative Workgroup

Springfield Partners for Community Action is an active partner assisting taxpayers with disabilities filing free-of-charge tax returns. Also provides outreach material to disability clients and offers Development Individual Assets Building classes to people who have disabilities and are currently working. Springfield Partners concentrated their efforts on two areas: educational workshops for internal and external employees interacting with the disability population and making some of the VITA sites fully wheelchair accessible. Springfield Partners for Community Action was able to increase of approx 10% in the amount of returns prepared for taxpayers with disabilities. Volunteers from the Springfield Ptrs Community Action have gone to the Senior Center in Holland MA and have reached more Elderly and Disabled taxpayers there.
