NMTCS provide opportunities to fund both small business transactions enabling direct debt support for companies with higher risk profiles that according the Federal Reserve’s 2018 Study do not attract or receive the credit required to grow, yet form the base for 2/3rds of the nation’s job growth and funding of larger leveraged transactions that support manufacturers, healthcare and education, all improving the access to necessities for our disadvantaged communities to form long-term platforms for sustainable growth. Without this flexible resource the capital needs required by these divergent yet necessary components of community stability and growth could not be efficiently and effectively served.
