The NMTC program, administered by the U.S. Department of the Treasury, was established by Congress in 2000 to incentivize increased investments in operating businesses and real estate projects located in low-income communities or serving targeted low-income populations. The NMTC program provides a tax credit against federal income tax obligations in exchange for the making of equity investments in specialized financial institutions called community development entities.
