Believe it or not, now is the time to start thinking about applying for federal financial aid and submitting the FAFSA. This free form requires income tax information, which means filing your taxes early allows you to submit your FAFSA early as well. If you need help with taxes, the Denver Asset Building Coalition offers free assistance with taxes. Check out their website:
Additionally, local organizations will be holding FAFSA application workshops where trained professionals can assist you in completing financial aid forms. The Denver Scholarship Foundation will be hosting FAFSA application workshops early in 2016. We will post the dates, times, and locations of these workshops to our blog as soon as they become available.
