Credit Smarts

IFCA launched the Credit Smarts program in 2015, with funding from Westchester Community Foundation.  The program is run in partnership with the Ossining Micro Fund.  It provides literacy workshops, credit counseling and no interest loans for one-time hardships to members of the community.  Please check events to get information on our next scheduled Credit Smarts workshop.

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA)

The VITA program offers free income tax preparation services during tax season (January - April 15) to members of the community who qualify.  In 2016, IFCA's trained volunteers prepared income tax returns for over 300 people and generated over $700,000.00 in refunds.
