New Markets Tax Credit

New Markets Tax Credit

For 35 years, Community Ventures, a Community Development Entity (CDE) based out of Lexington, has impacted the lives of Kentuckians in economically disadvantaged areas. In the last 14 years, Community Ventures has been able to expand the scope of possible projects through the New Markets Tax Credits (NMTC) program. The program is primarily used to finance real estate, commercial, industrial, and community facility projects.

As one of Kentucky’s only NMTC allocatees, Community Ventures has helped finance and support rural communities and urban environments across the state. NMTC funding targets low-income, poverty-stricken communities in designated census tracts and projects with this funding can subsidize up to 20% of their project’s capital needs.
