Central States Development Partners, Inc. (Central States) is a nationwide Community Development Entity (CDE) that was formed by its parent non-profit, Economic Growth Corporation to serve and provide investment capital for low-income communities or low-income persons.
Since its formation in 2009, Central States has sought to bring critical jobs, services and goods to low income communities.
First funded in 2016, Central States has received a total of $65 million in New Market Tax Credits (NMTC) back-to-back over two awards:
$45 million received in 2015-2016 Allocation Round
$20 million received in 2017 Allocation Round
The investments by Central States to date support more than $246.8 Million in project costs, creating 1,533 jobs, 1,112 construction jobs and 575 indirect jobs. Up to 90% of the new jobs created benefit low income persons.
Projects receiving NMTC allocations serve highly distressed markets in Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, and Florida that have exhibited high rates of rent burden, low-median worker rates compared to the area, and high percentages of poverty.
