Tri-County Community Action Agency’s Response


TCCAA is sensitive to the fact that our clients are some of the most vulnerable members of our community, especially when it comes to receiving needed support and access to services. Both the community and our funding sources are aware of the value of what we do for those we serve and continue to look to us to meet certain needs.

The leadership team at TCCAA has developed a plan in response to the changing needs of our community in the midst of the spread of COVID-19.

We continue to provide services while making every effort to consider the health and safety of our staff and clients. In adherence to guidance from the CDC, Health Department, and government officials, we have implemented the following measures to reduce the risk of spreading or contracting the disease while providing services.

This protocol will remain in effect until further notice.

Head Start

Our Head Start Centers are closed. Teachers and/or Case Managers will continue to contact families at least once per week to provide activities for students and ensure the families’ well-being. TCCAA will continue to meet the needs of our families.

In-Home Services
All in-home services have been suspended until further notice.


All meetings have either been cancelled or rescheduled to an online format. Affected participants will be notified directly.


In an effort to limit exposure at TCCAA, we have reduced the number of on-site staff. Some individuals will be able to work remotely and communicate via telephone or internet.

Tax Preparation

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to limit our Free Tax Prep to Wednesday drop off service only through April15, 2020. You can still prepare and file your own taxes online by using FREE FILE on www.IRS.gov.

The new federal filing deadline for tax year 2019 is July 15, 2020. The new state filing deadline is June 1, 2020. You can stay updated on IRS actions at www.IRS.gov.

Domestic Violence Services

Anyone in crisis due to a domestic violence or intimate partner incident should call our 24/7 hotline at 434.572-1136. All other general information calls related to domestic violence should call 434.572- 1135.

This program will still accept and process all donations.
