About the NMTC
The New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) was originally authorized in 2000 as part of a bipartisan collaboration between President Clinton and Speaker Hastert (R-IL). The idea behind the NMTC is that there are good business opportunities in urban and rural low-income communities, but the cost and availability of capital in these "New Markets" is an impediment to economic growth. NMTC employs a modest federal subsidy to stimulate private sector investment in these communities through a delivery system of private for-profit and nonprofit entities that provides patient, flexible capital to businesses and projects.
