New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) Program: How to Qualify

April 28, 2021

More than $55 billion of New Markets Tax Credit (“NMTC”) capital has been invested nationwide into thousands of businesses and real estate developments since 2002. TAG by Cherry Bekaert, Evansville Regional Economic Partnership, Old National Bank, and Fort Wayne New Markets Revitalization Fund, invite you to learn how to access New Markets Tax Credits for your qualified business, community facility, manufacturing plant, or real estate development and learn why Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio and other Midwest states have been identified as a priority within the NMTC industry.

The workshop will also cover real-world case studies of successful projects in the area, like the Southwestern Indiana YMCA, that successfully utilized NMTC financing.

These unique tax credits have helped non-profits, manufacturers, developers and business owners gain access to a low-cost source of capital to solve a portion of their capital needs while creating significant community and economic impact in distressed areas.

Join us to hear about the NMTC program and find out if your project or business qualifies.
