The Prosperity Center is delighted to announce that it has received a $5000.00 award from the Allegany Franciscan Ministries. These funds will allow the Center to offer Affordable Care Act enrollment assistance to its tax payer clients and others in the community. Affordable Care Act coverage is a necessity for many of the tax payers served at the center as many are uninsured. Health insurance and financial stability are intimately linked. The Free Tax Prep center is delighted to assist people looking for affordable coverage through the Healthcare Marketplace and very grateful to the Allegany Franciscan Ministries for their financial assistance.

In January the Center will offer a series of Saturday workshops where Certified Application Counselors will help applicants apply online using computers located in the Free Tax Prep Center. Once tax season begins in early February the center will take appointments for enrollment assistance during tax preparation operating hours, Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Saturdays during the day.
