New Markets Tax Credits

New Markets Tax Credit Benefits
 
The NMTC Program incentivizes community development and economic growth through the use of tax credits that attract private investment to distressed communities. As of the end of FY 2016, the NMTC Program has:
 
  • Generated $8 of private investment for every $1 of federal funding
  • Created 178 million square feet of manufacturing, office, and retail space
  • Financed over 5,400 businesses
 
OVERVIEW
 
Historically, low-income communities experience a lack of investment, as evidenced by vacant commercial properties, outdated manufacturing facilities, and inadequate access to education and healthcare service providers. The New Market Tax Credit Program (NMTC Program) aims to break this cycle of disinvestment by attracting the private investment necessary to reinvigorate struggling local economies.
 
The NMTC Program attracts private capital into low-income communities by permitting individual and corporate investors to receive a tax credit against their federal income tax in exchange for making equity investments in specialized financial intermediaries called Community Development Entities (CDEs). The credit totals 39 percent of the original investment amount and is claimed over a period of seven years.
 
ELIGIBILITY
 
NMTC Program applicants must be certified as CDEs by the CDFI Fund. 
 
CDE Certification is intended for community development financing intermediaries. Businesses seeking NMTC-enhanced financing should not apply for CDE Certification, but should instead contact CDEs directly. 
 
For additional information, please see the U.S. Department of the Treasury website.
