Note: the jobs totals in this fact sheet are through 2015 and they include a combination of direct, indirect, and induced FTE jobs and construction jobs. The “total investment” number refers to the total project investment (not NMTC allocation) in the state through the second quarter of 2020.

Strongest anti-displacement tool available, allowing people in neighborhoods suffering from disinvestment to acquire assets on their balance sheets and build infrastructure in their communities that would otherwise be impossible but for NMTC.
