NMTC Coalition Advocacy Week: May 16-20, 2022
Schedule Meetings and Promote the NMTC on Social Media
The week of May 16th, we are encouraging NMTC Coalition members to schedule virtual meetings (Zoom or another platform) meetings with members of Congress and their staff. We are also encouraging you to use the week to boost the NMTC on social media. Below, we’ve posted talking points and contact information below, as well as all of the relevant materials.
Who to Target?
1) Current supporters of the NMTC Extension Act (cosponsors of H.R. 1321 and cosponsors of S. 456. Meet with members of Congress who are already on board as a cosponsor of the NMTC Extension Act. Ask them to weigh in with leadership on the low cost of making the NMTC permanent.
2) Members of Congress who have not yet supported the NMTC Extension Act. You can ask members of Congress who are not yet cosponsors of the NMTC Extension Act to sign on as cosponsors. Brief them on your work in their states and districts, and make the ask!
We also encourage you to use these meetings as an opportunity to make members of Congress aware of the potentially damaging effects of the Pilar II treaty on community development tax incentives.
We have talking points available below for all of these asks. You can also find lists of cosponsors of the NMTC Extension Act, contact information for tax staffers, images for use on social media, and more. Once you’ve scheduled your meetings, we are asking that you input them into the form (linked below).
Please contact us if we can be of any assistance.
