2013 VITA Grant Application Now Available

VITA ApplicationIRS has announced that application instruction packages are now available on IRS.gov for the 2013 Volunteer Income Tax Assistance and Tax Counseling for the Elderly grant programs.

The application period extends from May 1 through May 31, 2012. IRS will be hosting an informational webinar to go through the package and answer your questions.

From Mike McBride at IRS SPEC:

Although these publications are available now and provide information on how to complete the application, interested applicants must wait until the announcements post on Grants.gov on May 1 to download the appropriate application. 

The Grant Program Office will host a conference call to review the application process on May 8 and May 9. Please plan to review the publication for the grant you are interested in prior to the conference call and formulate any questions not answered by the publication. A question and answer session is scheduled at the end of each call.  Material presented each day will be the same so plan to attend only one session by dialing in using the following information.

Toll-free Number:  (888) 285-4585
Participant Code:  162701
Time:  1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. EDT

A slide presentation will be posted on the VITA Grant Program and Tax Counseling for the Elderly webpage on irs.gov by Friday, May 4, 2012, under the “What’s Happening” section.  Please plan to download a copy of the presentation to view during the discussion. Within a week after the call, a script of the presentation will also be posted.

Registration is not required; however, lines are limited. For organizations planning to have more than one individual attend, please share a line. Access to the call begins 5 minutes before the scheduled start time.
