Community Leaders on the New Markets Tax Credit

In 2009, we utilized New Market Tax Credits to purchase and renovate a long-abandoned city-owned fire station, transforming it into a state of the art creative youth development center. We employ over 50 artists, engineers and administrators, who serve close to 1,000 young people per year – dramatically improving their life trajectories. We are celebrating our 28th year, and with the support of the NMTC, own our building outright (with no debt). Hopefully this will provide the foundation for the next 28 years!

-Madeleine Steczynski, Founder & Executive Director, Zumix, East Boston, Massachusetts

NMTC has been an important tool over the years for our organization to provide jobs and affordable housing to under served communities. Most of our homeowners are African American so this is bridging the inequity gap so vital to healing our nation.

-Candice Van Scoy, Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake, Baltimore, MD

The 3 NMTC projects completed in our community ensured over $50 million in private investment, increase the tax base, and created many new jobs.
