Staff from participating financial institutions will be on-site to provide information on free financial education and to open accounts for taxpayers interested in having their refund directly deposited.  For more information visit
This year, to ensure that all of the taxpayer’s needs are being met, volunteers will offer referral information to food, clothing and housing assistance. Hunger Solutions staff will also be on hand to help qualified people sign up for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
