The IRS provides matching grants of up to $100,000 per calendar 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 taxpayers who speak English as a second language (ESL) for free or a nominal fee.
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?
If you have questions about the LITC program or grant application process, please contact the LITC Program Office at 202-317-4700 (not a toll-free call) or by email at LITCProgramOffice@irs.gov.
See Publication 3319, Grant Application Package and Guidelines (PDF). This publication outlines the guidelines and requirements for receiving an LITC grant and provides instructions on how to apply.
The Low Income Taxpayer Clinic Map and Publication 4134, Low Income Taxpayer Clinic List (PDF) show the location of current LITCs.
