CVCA is currently taking appointments for tax return preparation.  Returns are prepared four days a week with evening hours available on Tuesdays and morning appointments every other Saturday at the CVCA office.  Appointments are required for the service due to the heavy volume of returns processed each year.

Community Needs Assessment

Part of being a community action agency is being responsive to the needs of our community.  Our services and programming should reflect the issues that are of concern to our residents.  Our goal this year is to survey 500 individuals.  If you would like to have a CVCA staff member visit your workplace,  church group, community organization, etc., we would be glad to present information about our services and conduct these surveys.  These presentations can be scheduled between January 27-February 22.
