This resulted in over $12 million dollars returned into El Paso economy. Families that received these refunds used them to build family assets, pay down debt, and build savings, which helps increase financial stability across our community.

In collaboration with our community partners like Home Ownership Assistance Program, the City Of El Paso, and the Coalition for Family Economic Progress, we are able to reach our community with free financial education, home purchase assistance and free tax preparation.
