The Neighborhood assistance Program 

Direct how your tax dollars are used

The Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) allows Missouri taxpayers to direct how their taxes are used by donating to state approved charitable organizations like Employment Connection. Employment Connection has been approved to provide $250,000 in state tax credits to our supporters!

Eligible donors will receive a state tax credit equaling 50% of their gift to Employment Connection, which may be applied to state tax liability for up to five years! Combined with a federal and state charitable income tax deduction, this credit lowers the actual cost of your gift significantly.
