The NMTC program attracts private capital to low-income communities by giving investors tax credits from their federal income tax in return for investments in qualified projects.
UBCD uses the NMTC program to help fund small businesses and fund projects related to education, healthcare, manufacturing, hospitality, nonprofits, and community centers. UBCD’s NMTC-funded projects create jobs, provide goods, services and housing options, and improve access to health care across the region.
