PROJECTEvaluating the NMTC Program

The New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) Program is a large, long-standing, place-based program that provides federal tax credits to attract private investment into distressed communities. NMTCs support a wide range of projects, including large commercial developments, office buildings, hotels, arts centers, charter schools, day care centers, medical clinics, small-business expansions, mixed-use developments, and homes for sale.

The Urban Institute has completed several studies of the NMTC Program; the reports and associated products are listed below.
