Workshop: New Markets Tax Credits

Join Community Vision’s New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) experts for an in-depth overview and group conversation about NMTC financing.

Learn about the NMTC program, which provides millions in low-cost private capital to a wide array of organizations located in under-invested areas throughout the United States. Closer to home, we will discuss the creative ways in which Community Vision has deployed its NMTCs to capitalize high-impact and innovative projects to spur economic development, foster the arts, increase access to healthy foods, create good jobs, and deliver critical human services.

Topics to be covered: 

  • History of the NMTC program and future outlook
  • Project eligibility and creative ways to make ineligible projects eligible
  • The basic NMTC financial transaction and the key players, including Community Development Entities (CDEs), like Community Vision
  • How this financial structure leverages the capital raised by the project sponsor from public and private funding sources to maximize NMTC benefits to provide essential gap financing
  • Community Benefits Agreements, which measure and document the community impacts of the project
  • The key roles played by NMTC consultants, attorneys and project sponsors to achieve successful financing results for high-impact projects
  • Keys to financing a successful project with NMTC financing
  • Case Studies: applying NMTCs to successful local projects
  • Q & A

Featured Speakers:

  • David Wilkinson, Community Vision Senior Real Estate Consultant
  • Kelly Ehrenfeld, Community Vision Real Estate Consultant
  • Luis A. Rodriguez, Partner, Goldfarb & Lipman LLP
  • Rafael Yaquian, Partner, Goldfarb & Lipman LLP
