Web Publication Schedule

Section 207(f)(2) of the E-Government Act of 2002 requires federal agencies to develop an inventory of information to be published on their websites, establish a schedule for publishing information, make those schedules available for public comment, and post the schedules and priorities on the website.

As new information becomes available at the CDFI Fund that is important to the public, we are committed to putting it on our website. If you have suggestions for additional information we should have on HUD's website, please let us know.

NEW MARKETS TAX CREDIT PROGRAM

The New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) Program permits taxpayers to receive a credit against Federal income taxes for making qualified equity investments in designated Community Development Entities (CDEs).  Substantially all of the qualified equity investment must in turn be used by the CDE to provide investments in low-income communities.  The credit provided to the investor totals 39% of the cost of the investment and is claimed over a seven-year credit allowance period.  In each of the first three years, the investor receives a credit equal to five percent of the total amount paid for the stock or capital interest at the time of purchase.  For the final four years, the value of the credit is six percent annually.
