“Last tax season, the Maryland Community Fellowship Program gave me the opportunity to increase awareness about VITA. This year, I get to make an impact as a tax site manager!” Noah Johnston (MCFP ’17-’19)

The Maryland Community Fellows Program is a partnership between the CASH Campaign of Maryland, the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development, and various Community Action Agencies (CAAs) statewide. The Maryland Community Fellows Program began in 2009 as a way to increase the capacity of CAAs to offer free tax preparation and financial education as well as other asset building and human services to the communities they serve.
