Stay informed about North Penn Legal Service activity and advocacy work.

This summer, one of NPLS volunteer law school students shared his view on the work that NPLS' Advocates do on behalf of low-income people as well as his own experience from the last 10 weeks.

NPLS has posted the recently revised Self-Help Handbook for Tenants in the Resource Library on our website.  The handbook is available in both English and Spanish.  Links to both handbooks are included below.  The handbook is posted as one document and also separated by chapter.  If you live in the Lehigh Valley and would like a printed copy of either handbook, please call NPLS at 610-317-8757.  A copy will be mailed to you.  

English Self-Help Handbook for Tenants:

NPLS is pleased to announce that we have received a grant from the Scranton Area Community Foundation to fund office space in downtown Scranton so that our advocates can meet with clients before their court hearings.

We're excited to show you our ads for the Fair Housing bus awareness campaign that will run from April 1st to June 30th.  Be on the lookout for our ads across the Lehigh Valley during the next three months.  

It's tax time.  Find out if you qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit or EITC.  

The Earned Income Tax Credit, EITC or EIC, is a benefit for working people with low to moderate income. To qualify, you must meet certain requirements and file a tax return, even if you do not owe any tax or are not required to file. EITC reduces the amount of tax you owe and may give you a refund.
