From Boys and Girls Clubs to comprehensive campuses dedicated to social service delivery, the New Markets Tax Credit has financed hundreds of projects that expand access to after school programs, daycare, recreational facilities, family counseling, and other services that support strong, healthy families. Below are a few examples:
Recreational Facilities for Children
Social Service Hubs
ChildSafe Salado Creek Campus, San Antonio, Texas
Boys & Girls Clubs of Manatee County, Florida
Since its establishment in 1946, more than 40,000 children have passed through the doors of the DeSoto Club operated by Boys & Girls Clubs of Manatee County (BGCMC). But today its 50–year old current facility is aged and obsolete.
With financing through the NMTC Program and Florida Community Loan Fund, BGCMC will build a new 47,500 square foot building that will more than double its current capacity and reach an estimated 2,400 children and youth annually, 75% of whom are low-income. BGCMC programs include academic excellence, good character and citizenship, and healthy lifestyles.
