UNHP’s Bronx Free Tax Preparation Program filed over 1500 tax returns for Bronx residents, trained over 80 student volunteers, and delivered over 1.9 million dollars of fee-free refunds back to the Bronx.

Public Hearings on the 2015-16 Water and Sewer Rate Increase

​There will be public hearings in each of the boroughs during the last week of April about the latest water and sewer rate increase proposal. Mayor de Blasio's administration is proposing a 3.24% increase to take effect on July 1, 2015. UNHP will be testifying against the rate increase at the Bronx Hearings. While UNHP acknowledges the increase is the lowest in 10 years, UNHP is calling for a freeze this year and a re-evaluation of how water rates are set for affordable housing next year.

UNHP Welcomes First Lehman College Tax Volunteer

The UNHP Free Tax Preparation Program depends on the generosity of our college student volunteers. Students from Fordham University, Manhattan College and Lehman College take a 15 hour on-line training as well as an 8 hour in person training before they begin working with tax filers. Meet Maimouna, one of our 80 student volunteers, who have trained for the UNHP program in 2015.
