Maplewood will be hosting two workshops in March for the Essex County Home Improvement Program. Please spread the word through your communications channels.The Essex County Home Improvement Program is a federally funded program that provides deferred loans to low-and-moderate income homeowners who occupy a 1 to 3 family home. A homeowner who receives a loan has a lien recorded against the property. The loan is forgiven if the homeowner stays in the home for 10 years. If ownership of the property changes before 10 years, the lien must be paid off.
Examples of eligible improvements include: Heating systems, roofing, siding, building and pipe insulation, gutters, doors, plumbing, electrical, energy efficiency measures, and code violation abatement.

SOMA Two Towns for All Ages will be holding a community-wide volunteer fair on Sunday March 26th. One of our goals as an age friendly community is to find ways for older adults to stay engaged, but it is not only older adults who are looking to volunteer: we have so many residents who are looking to get involved and share their talents and passions.
This includes people new to the area and those with young families.
We are inviting community organizations like yours to be a part of it!
You do so much to enrich the lives of the people you serve and help make our towns a great place to live.
We invite you to join us on:
Sunday, March 26, 2023
The Woodland, Maplewood
Set up would start at 12:00, we will have a table ready for you and bring any information and materials you want to set up and share.
I hope you will join us to show off your organization’s work and find volunteers committed to helping your cause. Please let me know by February 28 if you intend to participate in the fair, and feel free to pass this invitation on to other organizations you think might be interested.
AARP Tax Preparation
FREE FEDERAL AND STATE INCOME TAXES
ELECTRONICALLY PREPARED AND
FILED BY IRS CERTIFIED VOLUNTEERS
Each taxpayer will be required to have two appointments. At the first
appointment an interview and review of tax documents will be done, and the
documents will be scanned. You will then leave, and your tax return will be
prepared remotely. If any questions arise during the preparation or review,
you will be contacted by telephone. When the tax return is completed, we
will schedule a second appointment with you to come back and receive a
printout of your completed return, review it with you, answer any questions
you may have, and have you sign the final documents, so we can
electronically file the return. Remember, if your filing status is Married Filing
Jointly, both parties must come to sign.
To contact us, you can either send an email to:
TaxAideJC20@gmail.com,or leave a voice message or text at: 551-
258-3319. The telephone number is to an automated service so please tell
us when a good time to reach you by phone would be, and we will call back
with this number.
We can then explain in detail what the new process entails and set up an
appointment for you to do your taxes.
