Advocacy Toolkit

Take Action: Here are the top four ways you can help extend the New Markets Tax Credit.

1. Build support for the House Extension Bill, H.R. 855: Ask your Representative to cosponsor the New Markets Tax Credit Extension Act of 2015 (HR 855), introduced by Reps. Tiberi (R-OH), Neal (D-MA), and Reed (R-NY).

2. Build support for the Senate Extension Bill, S. 591: Ask your Senator to support a NMTC Extension by cosponsoring the New Markets Tax Credit Extension Act of 2015 (S. 591), introduced by Senators Blunt (R-MO), Schumer (D-NY), Daines (R-MT), and Cardin (D-MD).

3. Write an Op-Ed: Submitting an opinion piece to your local or state press is a great way to bring attention to the impact of the NMTC in your community. Highlight the projects and the effect the Credit has had on economic growth as well as creating and retaining jobs where they are needed the most.

4. Invite Members of Congress to Visit a NMTC Financed Business: Getting a Member of Congress to visit a NMTC financed business is simply one of the most powerful ways to advocate for the extension.

Consider extending an invitation when you visit Congressional staff in DC or contract their district office with potential dates and possible NMTC financed businesses that would be of interest. Visit our In District Advocacy toolkit  to learn more.
