The Network Center for Community Change Needs Students for Outreach Program

The Network Center for Community Change is once again gearing up to do door-to-door outreach to property owners who have unpaid property taxes. The goal is to help homeowners avoid having those delinquent taxes be sold by the Jefferson County Clerk to third party purchasers. A sale to a private individual or business will mean more fees and costs will be added to the tax bill.

There will be an informational session on April 4 from 9:30-11 at NC3's headquarters on the 3rd floor of the Metro United Way building at 334 East Broadway downtown. This session is not mandatory, but students who are interested in the issues of property taxes and their connection to foreclosure and vacant and abandoned property would find it interesting. More information is available on the attached flyer.

Following that meeting, they plan on doing outreach at the following times. We will meet at NC3 headquarters and walk in teams of two.

Tuesday, May 7 at 10 a.m.
Tuesday, May 14 at 1 p.m.
Tuesday, May 21 at 3 p.m.
Tuesday, May 28 at 5:30 p.m.

They are planning to schedule three property tax clinics. The first clinic will be May 18th at 1:30 p.m. at their offices. The other two clinics will be scheduled for a later date.

If you are interested in doing grassroots outreach as a public service, this is an important area of service and you will learn about a rather obscure area of the law that affects thousands of Jefferson County residents each year.

If you are interested, please contact Jina Scinta at jina.scinta@louisville.edu to sign up to receive public service credit. Further details will be provided to those who sign up.
