Through the NMTC Preparation Program, Capital Fund will support an initial phase of free technical assistance to participating centers offered through its affiliate, Capital Link. In addition, for a select number of centers, Capital Fund will provide grants to support a portion of the cost of a Capital Link engagement agreement to develop the materials needed for a successful NMTC financing.
Preliminary Assistance: Initial Capital Link assistance—entirely supported by Capital Fund and free to program participants—will include:
- Group webinar to review and explain the NMTC program and financing process
- Individual discussions with management about the NMTC program
- Assessment of project eligibility
Direct Grant Support: Following the Preliminary Assistance phase, Capital Fund will select 5 – 7 centers for direct grant support to defray a portion of the cost of preparing for an NMTC financing.
Common components supported by grant funding may include:
- A transaction summary, detailing the proposed project and its expected community benefits;
- A full business plan and 7-year financial projections;
- NMTC structuring, including securing leverage debt (if needed);
- Guidance and assistance throughout the closing process.
We will also be hosting an informative webinar about the NMTC program. Register below:
Webinar: NMTC Financing Preparation - A Closer Look
Tuesday, January 17, 2023 from 4-5 PM EST
Are you considering utilizing New Markets Tax Credits to help finance your health center capital project? You may have heard that you can net about 18-20% of your total project costs in what eventually becomes the equivalent of a grant, and that the process is not for the faint of heart – and you would be right on both counts. Over $1B of FQHC capital projects have been funded through this process, so you can do it, but it will help to know a bit about what you are getting into. This webinar will provide you with that and a whole lot more.
Presenter: Dave Kleiber, Senior Project Consultant, Capital Link
