The ability to access quality health care causes many challenges for uninsured Virginians, including physical, emotional and financial challenges. The volunteers and staff of CrossOver Ministry are working to help address those challenges by providing comprehensive health care services to the uninsured.
Crossover operates a network of three free clinics conveniently located across the greater metropolitan Richmond area. The clinics provide health care services to people who are uninsured and have a household income at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level.

Disabled Veterans can apply for real estate tax exemption
Henrico County is urging disabled veterans who own their principal residence in the county to apply for recently implemented real estate tax exemption. Virginia voters adopted a constitutional amendment in the general election last November, directing the General Assembly to provide a tax exemption for a retired service person with 100 percent service-related, permanent and total disability, as determined by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
The exemption applies to: principal residence and up to 10 acres; veteran or surviving spouse (if the veteran's death occurs on or after Jan. 1, 2011); and does not require re-filing each year.
Revenue Division Director Ed Trice noted that, unlike Henrico's Real Estate Advantage Program (REAP), there are no income or financial requirements for disabled veterans seeking the tax exemption. In addition, there is no cap on the amount of relief they will receive.
For more information, contact Henrico's Revenue Division at 501-4263, or log onto www.co.henrico.va.us/finance and follow the link for "Disabled Veterans Real Estate Tax Exemption."

Reinvest (Residential Investment Tax Abatement) is a partial tax-exemption program designed to encourage improvements and rehabilitation of qualifying homes -- those 40 years and older with an assessed value of $200,000 or less. This is a program open to all owners of residential property, both investment properties or your primary residence (excluding multi-family rental units). The program is designed to protect and preserve mature, settled neighborhoods. By improving the appearance of the properties, Henrico County will continue to be an appealing place in which future homeowners will invest!
To qualify, any improvement, renovation or addition must increase the base value of the structure by a minimum of 20 percent, and may not increase the square footage of the structure by more than 100 percent.
Renovations on eligible homes are not taxed for seven years -- including additions and similar projects that meet program criteria. This means that when assessing your home for real estate tax purposes, the county will not tax your home improvement, even though it will increase the assessed value of the total structure. The homeowner will pay real estate taxes only on the base value of the residence, for seven years.
There is a one-time, non-refundable $50 processing fee that must accompany your application. You can download the application from Henrico County's Finance Department Web site at www.co.henrico.va.us/departments/finance and click on "Reinvest: Residential Rehabilitation Tax Credit," or call 501-4217 - Tom Little - for more information.
