2016 NMTC Coalition Annual Conference
The 2016 NMTC Coalition Annual Conference was held on December 14-15 at the Hotel Monaco in Washington, D.C. This year’s event provided one of the first opportunities for the NMTC industry to engage with the CDFI Fund after the 2015-2016 “super round,” awarding CDEs $7 billion in NMTC allocations. On the legislative front, attendees heard updates on the new Administration and 115th Congress, concerning tax policy and regulatory plans for the NMTC. The conference also featured panels on investing and regulatory matters of importance from NMTC experts.
As in past years, time was set aside for attendees to visit their Members of Congress, as well as attend a Capitol Hill reception. Thank you to all of the conference attendees who made this one of our best attended and most substantive conferences yet. We also thank our conference sponsors for their generous support, including Baker Tilly, Butler Snow, Capital One, Chase, Citi, Dentons, Enhanced Community Development, Mass Development, Nixon Peabody, Urban Action Community Development, and Texas Mezzanine Fund.
