New Market Tax Credits – Creating Economic Health and Prosperity

Tuesday, January 25, 2022; 10 a.m. MST

Many tribal communities find themselves isolated and underdeveloped, unable to build and support a local economy that can provide the needed jobs and services for economic prosperity. New Markets Tax Credits (NMTC) is a tool that can help tribal communities develop the key community projects that lack the needed capital to move forward. This webinar will introduce the use of NMTC for your project and unlock the possibilities of growth and expansion for job development and the expansion of key goods and services in tribal communities.
