Stimulating growth in low-income communities and closing financial gaps


The New Markets Tax Credit Program is a federal financial program that attracts private capital into low-income communities by allowing investors to receive a tax credit against their federal income in exchange for making equity investments in Community Development Entities (CDEs). The goal of the program is to stimulate growth in low-income communities by creating new business opportunities, jobs and access to healthcare and groceries.
