The Common Cents Conference is a 2-day regional conference that gives attendees an opportunity to learn about the complex financial challenges facing our community and discover research based tools that address these issues. The conference introduces practitioners to a variety of innovative program models and solutions they can use to assist the individuals and families they serve to achieve their financial dreams.

Now in its 7th year, the Common Cents Conference has grown to be one of the region’s best learning opportunities for a broad set of practitioners who care about helping individuals and families earn, keep, and save their money. We welcome VITA sites, financial education programs, non-profits, faith-based groups, Community Action Agencies, foundations, financial institutions, educational institutions, state and local agencies, workforce and housing programs interested in providing financial security services.

Common Cents is hosted by CASH Campaign of Maryland, Community Tax Aid and Virginia CASH Campaign. These coalitions conduct critical outreach to insure that low-income families receive the Earned Income Tax Credit, provide free or low-cost tax preparation, and connect families to appropriate financial services and education. These coalitions serve more than 53,000 residents each year.
