Economic Justice and Opportunity
Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program
In partnership with the IRS and the Geneva Public Library, BluePrint runs an annual FREE tax clinic that prepares returns for filers in Geneva earning $54,000 or less. In addition to preparing taxes, we can assist people with immediate access to their refund and help with unexpected tax liabilities. All of these services are offered FREE, no hidden charges, no interest, no unexpected fees.
Growing Cycle is not just about environmental justice, it's also about creating opportunities for people to serve their communities in meaningful ways while receiving income. Growing Cycle provides training for individuals who may have be displaced from the workforce or otherwise need an opening back into the labor market. The ultimate goal is a cooperative business model.
In all of BluePrint's projects, we want to find ways to lift up people's ideas and find new ways of meeting community needs. We have become a go-to organization for getting projects started, and we love that. Our goal is to help people get their ideas going.
