How to use your tax refund to help your community
- by admin
If you’re a resident of the U.S., you can use a tax refund you received from the UCC to help a local community college to make improvements.
According to a statement from the United Community Bank of Southern California, the bank has a “special grant” program that can be used to help local businesses, businesses with vacant land and community colleges with their projects.
The statement says the grant is available for “projects that are critical to the health and welfare of the communities in which they are located, but it does not cover the cost of the property and the services needed to support those projects.”
In 2017, UCC students and residents received a total of $3.8 million from the grant, which was a record amount for the community college.
The bank’s grant is administered by the United Way of Southern CA, which serves approximately 50,000 community members and their families, according to the statement.
The program is open to residents of the Los Angeles area, but the bank says residents of any other county or state are eligible to apply.
If you or someone you know is eligible, contact the UHC’s public relations office at 310-942-3860.
