Capital Fund Receives $55 Million NMTC Allocation to Support Health Centers
On Friday, Oct. 28, 2022, the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Community Development Financial Institutions Fund announced that it awarded $5 billion in New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) allocations to Community Development Entities to revitalize low-income communities and increase economic opportunity nationwide. We are proud to announce that Community Health Center Capital Fund received a $55 million NMTC allocation.
107 Community Development Entities were selected for awards from 199 applicants that requested an aggregate total of $14.7 billion in tax credit allocation. Approximately 78% of these NMTC investment proceeds are estimated to be used to finance and support loans to or investments in operating businesses in low-income communities. The award recipients are located in 35 different states and the District of Columbia. Over 20% of the investments will be made in rural communities. These award recipients are estimated to make nearly $1 billion in NMTC investments in non-metropolitan counties.
