The NMTC allowed us to build a YMCA in one of Raleigh’s poorest communities. Because of the Y’s commitment to enter the market, we also attracted a new public school, 120 affordable housing unit’s and are in the planning phase of commercial development to bring jobs and job training to this campus. Non of that would have happened without NMTC.

The NMTC program is the best example of a public-private partnership. It provides financial incentive and benefit to investors while serving communities that would otherwise never receive these investments. It creates jobs, which stabilizes and improves communities thereby reducing the burden of public assistance in areas without options. It provides benefit to constituents who value public social programs and to those who value self-sufficiency. There are not many programs – or topics – that can have that level of appeal to all interested parties. The program is a win-win-win. It helps America to grow and thrive.

The NMTC means inclusion, mobility, growth, opportunity and equity fostered out of the developments and programing of NMTC community and economic revitalization efforts.

Now more than ever, we find the only sure way out of institutional poverty is through home ownership, the building of equity within the existing free market system. The New Markets Tax Credit program achieves that goal by providing much needed funding to physically build homes for hard working families within qualifying census tracts. This money goes directly from the closing of the transaction into the construction of these homes. Families work alongside volunteers to build their homes, they are provided with a mortgage calibrated to their income, and they pay for their homes over a 25 to 30 year period. This economic and tenure security changes the lives of both current and future generations, thus leveraging up the value of the New Markets Tax Credit investment. We urgently request a permanent extension of the NMTC, and additional allocation of funds to continue the transformational work this program makes possible.
