ROC Your Family’s Future (RYFF)

 

It’s Your Money!

You earned it, now claim it!

ROC Your Family’s Future (RYFF) empowers families in our community by making them aware that tax credits might be a source of income that they didn’t know about. RYFF partners with other CASH programs and the wider network of community organizations to provide coaching and financial planning advice that help families turn tax credits into resources that can create a more stable future.

We use our knowledge and expertise to create awareness and outreach programs that help families in our community understand how the Earned Income Tax Benefit works, how to go about ensuring that they get what is available to them and how they can use the tax refund to help create a more stable future.

Do You Qualify?

Do you have children? Have you claimed the (EITC) before?

Change your family’s future by claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) 

You may qualify if:
• You are a working parent or guardian with children who live with you
• Your children are under 19 at the end of 2021 [full time students under 24]

EITC is not the same as CTC, but don’t worry you can claim both. Receiving or saving EITC doesn’t impact your other benefits such as SNAP, Medicaid, and subsidized housing.

Take our survey or call  585-900-1004 to speak with an RYFF program specialist and see if you qualify today!

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES)

The RYFF program helps families use the money received in their tax credits to promote financial and household stability, thereby reducing the risk factors associated with adverse childhood experiences (ACES). ACES can include physical and emotional abuse, neglect, caregiver mental illness, and household violence. Increasing household financial security and access to resources are key factors in preventing ACES.
