Investing in Lower-Income Communities
Creating economic opportunity for all means bringing investment to the communities that need it most. That's why we participate in the New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) program, a federal initiative that encourages investment in lower-income communities.
If your business or project is located in an economically-distressed area, you may be eligible for a NMTC loan. Self-Help's NMTC program helps borrowers finance the purchase, construction and renovation of real property. Some of our borrowers have included charter schools, healthy foods enterprises, green businesses, commercial real estate developers and nonprofits.
