More Money for You and Your Family.

About

The ultimate goal of the Community Approaches to Strengthening Economic Supports (CASES) is to put money back into the pockets of working people like you by increasing awareness and receipt of the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). Putting extra money back into your pocket gives you the opportunity to pay for expenses like food, housing, car payments and much more!

The CASES program was established by the Greater Flint Health Coalition to serve lower-income, working families throughout Genesee County who are disproportionately at risk for adverse childhood experiences (ACEs).

Eligibility
