TWO IMPORTANT DATES FOR NEXT MONTH
April 1 is Census Day. It is important people with disabilities and their families be counted, as the census data impacts how much money state and local governments receive for things like education, Medicaid and Social Security. Read  Why the Census Matters for People with Disabilities to learn more and make sure your family is counted!

In addition, taxes are due April 15. Before filing, read about  Disability and the Earned Income Tax Credit  to see if your family qualifies for this credit.
