Financial Literacy Outreach Program: DACA’s Free Financial Education and Outreach Program is a direct outgrowth of our annual Free Federal and State Tax Preparation Program. In working with our clientele on their annual Federal tax obligations, other financial needs surfaced such as budgeting, record and bookkeeping, identify theft, and college education expenses. We saw a need for additional financial services and education to help our clients meet their financial obligations and establish stability in their lives. We created two programs to meet these needs, the Tax Education Program and Financial Education Outreach.
Financial Aid University Program: DACA has been providing college access services since 2012 when we collaborated with National Community of Tax Coalitions (NCTC), a national organization that is sponsored by the Federal Department of Education to provide college assistance. Through our partnership with NCTC, we adopted their Financial Aid University program that provides financial aid awareness through the distribution of financial aid literature, presentations and assistance in completing the Free Application for Federal Student Assistance (FAFSA). Since then, DACA has reached out to over 5,000 students in Delaware. Our accomplishments include partnerships with Delaware School Districts, ASPIRA of Delaware, Department of Education, and Delaware Adolescent Program Inc. (DAPI).
