Thank you to everyone who attended the New Markets Tax Credit Coalition’s Annual Conference on December 11th and 12th at the Hotel Monaco in Washington, D.C.
We had several important keynotes, including Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO), Sen. Ben Cardin, Rep. Terri Sewell (D-AL), who will discuss tax extenders and NMTC legislation; Comptroller of the Currency Joseph Otting, who discussed the OCC’s vision for CRA reform; and CDFI Fund Director Jodie Harris, who provided updates on the agency’s priorities for the NMTC in the year ahead. There was a Legislative Outlook panel with key congressional staff after lunch on the 11th, and the conference closed out with the Treasury Department panel from 11am to 12pm on December 12th. We also had panels on CRA reform and the trends in small loan funds.
A key part of the conference, especially given the pending expiration of the NMTC, was the time set aside for attendees to visit Capitol Hill on December 11th from 2:30 to 5:30 pm. The Coalition scheduled meetings for those who requested assistance in their registration.
