Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Partnership Volunteers & "Food Stamp" Outreach & Resource Navigators

Volunteer Opportunity Details:

Last updated on January 8, 2016

Community Action VITA Partnership is a program of the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services, and brings together resources from the IRS, the City of Rockville, the City of Gaithersburg and its "Bank On" initiative, the University of Maryland Coop Ext., Family Services, Inc., the Maryland CASH Campaign, Maryland Hunger Solutions, local nonprofits and volunteers to help assure high quality, free tax services for families earning under $54,000 a year.

Want to link VITA families with food and other resources? Can you volunteer between January and April 2016 and June through October 2016?

Last year, volunteers participated in Maryland Hunger Solutions and Montgomery County's Community Action Agency's Voluntary Income Tax Assistance (VITA) partnership, serving over 2,000 low-to-moderate income households, and returning over $4.8 million to families through EITC (Earned Income Tax Credits), Child Tax Credits and state and federal refunds.

"Food Stamp" Outreach & Resource Navigators are responsible for screening and assisting customers interested in Food Stamps and other resources. Navigators will perform prescreening to determine if a client is eligible for the food supplemental program and refer customers to other needed food resources.


--MidCounty Regional Services Center in Wheaton
--Takoma East Silver Spring Center (TESS)
--City of Rockville
--City of Gaithersburg

Navigators are needed primarily during the afternoons and evenings, with some daytime and Saturday hours.

All VITA volunteers must complete the IRS "Standard of Conduct" training and pass a certification test. If you want to be an intake screener, preparer, and/or quality reviewer you must certify at the Basic or Advanced Level through the IRS. Please call our office at 240-777-1123 for further information.

Our partner, Maryland Hunger Solutions, is providing training for Food Stamp Outreach & Resource Navigators. To learn more, contact Rachel Tucker at rtucker@mdhungersolutions.org or call 410-528-0021 x23
