The NMTC program provides tax credits for investment into operating businesses and development projects located in qualifying "distressed" communities by certified Community Development Entities (CDEs). Projects closed on or after Nov. 1, 2018, must use 2011-2015 ACS low-income community eligibility data applied to the 2010 census tracts for determining eligibility. Use the interactive tax credit mapping tool to help determine if a project may qualify within eligible census tracts.
About New Market Tax Credits
The New Markets Tax Credit program helps economically distressed communities attract private investment capital by providing investors with a federal tax credit. Investments made through the NTMC Program are used to finance businesses and real estate projects, breathing new life into neglected, underserved communities. The NMTC Program catalyzes investment where it’s needed most; over 70% of NMTC investments have been made in highly distressed areas. These are communities with low median incomes and high rates of unemployment, and the NMTC investments can have a dramatic positive impact. For every $1 invested by the Federal government, the NMTC Program generates over $8 of private investment.
