IRS VITA Grant Program


The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) grant program is an IRS initiative designed to support free tax preparation service for the underserved through various partner organizations. This service helps low- to moderate-income individuals, persons with disabilities, the elderly, and limited English speakers file their taxes each year. IRS awards matching funds to these support organizations that offer free tax preparation services during the tax filing season at locations in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Our current grants allow IRS partner organizations to:

  • Increase VITA services to the underserved across the country;
  • Increase the number of returns filed electronically;
  • Enhance volunteer training; and
  • Significantly improve the accuracy of returns prepared at volunteer sites.
