On Feb. 2, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti launched the Free Tax Prep Los Angeles campaign in collaboration with local private and public organizations, including KYCC. The campaign is designed to provide free tax preparation services to low-to-moderate income households and help eligible families claim thousands of dollars’ worth of State and Federal tax credits.

Garcetti empathizes with how complicated the process of tax filing can be without professional assistance and resources. His initiative is funded by a $250,000 Citi Innovation grant to HCIDLA as well as two $300,000 grants from the California Department of Community Services and Development secured by KYCC and partner agency Youth Policy Institute.
