About New Markets Tax Credits and Vermont Rural Ventures

Vermont Rural Ventures NMTC project BarreCity_394x300 The U.S. Treasury’s New Markets Tax Credit program (NMTC), which began in 2000, is designed to spur economic development activity in economically disadvantaged communities throughout the country. These low-income communities often have good, viable business and economic development opportunities, but have no access to capital. The NMTC addresses this capital gap by providing the incentive of a Federal tax credit to individuals or corporations that invest in a Community Development Entity (CDE).

Vermont Rural Ventures (VRV) is a qualified CDE operated by Housing Vermont. VRV uses NMTC resources to support investment in the economic, environmental, and social well-being of Vermont communities. NMTC funds are used to retain and create jobs and essential goods and services for Vermonters by financing key community developments in downtown and village centers and in other concerted community efforts that demonstrate positive impacts on Vermont’s economic, health care, energy and food systems.
