New Markets Tax Credits
NFF's NMTC program supports community development projects that benefit low income neighborhoods. NFF has used NMTC to provide flexible financing to organizations and projects that increase access to human services, healthcare, education, arts and culture, youth and workforce development, and much more in communities across the US.
Our approach and commitment to equity
NFF believes that communities know their own needs and should be able to make decisions to guide their future and reach toward shared goals. Yet many communities of color and organizations led by people of color have faced decades of disinvestment due to deeply entrenched institutional barriers in how money flows. As a national CDFI, NFF is committed to addressing inequity by:
- Helping community-centered organizations led by and serving people of color gain control of financial resources to help realize their communities’ aspirations
- Holding ourselves accountable to our "Plan 50%+" with more than half of our total lending going to organizations led by people of color
NFF has invested $401 million in NMTC to over 50 organizations across the US
We chose NFF as our financing partner because they truly understand the challenges and needs of operating a community health center. They are driven by mission, and are genuinely interested in the health and well-being of patients living in our community.
