Today, the CDFI Fund released updated census tract eligibility data for the NMTC program. The eligibility update utilizes data from the 2011-2015 American Community Survey (ACS). Detailed guidance will be posted soon on the CDFI Fund website.

Eligibility Changes:

There are about 73,000 census tracts nationwide, of which 31,640 are eligible based on poverty, income, or high out-migration. The eligibility changes remove a total of 4,517 previously eligible census tracts, but add 6,050 newly eligible census tracts, for a net gain of 1,533 eligible tracts.
