We are proud to be partnering with Get Ahead Colorado to support nonprofits across the state through trainings, resources, and in-person support to increase awareness and uptake of tax credits. Tax credits are a proven way to help lift people out of poverty and research shows that claiming tax credits has a positive impact on intergenerational health and wellbeing. CRC is excited to be supporting over 20 direct service nonprofits in 2024 to increase awareness of tax credits and provide support to community members with accessing free, tax-filing assistance. Our program prioritizes organizations serving low-income communities, refugee, immigrant and newcomer communities, rural communities, non-English speakers, and communities of color.
