Boston Community Capital Awarded $55 Million New Markets Tax Credit Allocation by CDFI Fund

Thursday, November 17, 2016

Boston Community Capital is delighted to announce that we have been awarded a $55 million New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) allocation by the CDFI Fund of the U.S. Department of Treasury. The CDFI Fund recently announced that 120 allocatees in 36 states will receive NMTC awards, over $7 billion in total.

The New Markets Tax Credit program, run by the CDFI Fund, provides tax credits to community development organizations, helping them to leverage additional investment in economically distressed communities to create jobs and stimulate local economies. 

This award marks BCC's eighth NMTC allocation. To date, Boston Community Capital has deployed $468 million in NMTC in underserved communities nationwide.

Boston Community Capital has a 30-year track record of investing in low-income communities, partnering with public, private, and civic players to direct investment dollars into community development initiatives across the nation. BCC’s investments have leveraged over $6 billion in public and private investment in underserved communities.  Boston Community Capital will deploy this NMTC allocation to support community revitalization and economic development, investing in organizations that create jobs and opportunities for low-income people and communities.
