IRS grants go to Quinnipiac University and UConn

The Internal Revenue Service has awarded nearly $10 million in matching grants to Low-Income Taxpayer Clinics (LITCs) for the 2011 grant cycle, including two recipients from Connecticut.
The IRS awarded $75,000 to Quinnipiac University in Hamden and $88,000 to the University of Connecticut's Greater Hartford campus.

LITCs are organizations that represent low-income taxpayers in federal tax controversies with the IRS for free or for a nominal charge and/or provide tax education and outreach for taxpayers who speak English as a second language.

Through the LITC program, the IRS awards matching grants of up to $100,000 a year to qualifying organizations.

Questions about the LITC Program can be addressed to the LITC Program Office at (202) 622-4711 (not a toll-free call) or by e-mail at IRS Publication 4134, Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic List, provides information on LITCs in each geographic area and the languages each clinic serves in addition to English.
