Use of the NMTC enabled the final capital structure for Mississippi Silicon. At $200 million, Mississippi Silicon is the largest private investment ever made in Tishomingo County, Mississippi. We were the “anchor tenant” in an industrial park in Burnsville MS. The industrial park was virtually empty when we invested here. Now it includes four different companies and as many as 500 well-paying jobs. This makes quite a difference in a rural county with total populations approximating 20,000.
