Information for Potential LITC Grantees

The IRS provides matching grants of up to $100,000 per year to develop, expand, or continue the operation of a qualified Low Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC). Qualified LITCs include organizations that represent low income taxpayers in controversies with the IRS and conduct education and outreach to ESL taxpayers for free or a nominal charge.

LITCs are operated by legal aid and legal services organizations, clinical programs at accredited law, business or accounting schools, and other non-profit organizations that serve low income individuals and families.

 How do I find more information about applying for a grant?

See Publication 3319, Grant Application Package and Guidelines. This publication outlines the guidelines and requirements for receiving an LITC grant and provides instructions on how to apply.


The 2016 grant application period is now closed.  The 2017 grant application period will open in the spring of 2016.


The Low Income Taxpayer Clinic Map and Publication 4134, Low Income Taxpayer Clinic List show the location of current LITCs.
