CDFI FUND RELEASES APPLICATION DEMAND FOR 2019 ROUND OF NMTC PROGRAM

The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund) announced today that it received a total of 206 applications under the 2019 round of the New Markets Tax Credit Program (NMTC Program). The NMTC Program advances economic development in economically distressed communities by making tax credit allocations available to Community Development Entities (CDEs) for targeted investments in eligible areas.

The CDEs that applied under the 2019 round are headquartered in 44 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. These applicants requested an aggregate total of $14.7 billion in NMTC allocation authority, over four times the $3.5 billion in authority available for the 2019 round.
