2. FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT: TECHNICAL WORKSHOPS FOR NEW MARKETS TAX CREDIT PROGRAM NATIVE INITIATIVE
Participate in our next round of technical workshops on February 22 and 23 in person at Embassy Suites Phoenix Downtown North or attend virtually via Zoom.
The NMTC Program Native Initiative is an effort to increase New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) investment in Federal Indian Reservations, Off-Reservation Trust Lands, Hawaiian Home Lands, and Alaska Native Village Statistical Areas, collectively referred to as NMTC Native Areas. Big Water Consulting and its partners were selected by the CDFI Fund to administer this project based on their extensive knowledge of the NMTC Program and their experience conducting trainings related to the NMTC Program for Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) and Community Development Entities (CDEs).
The next set of workshops will be held on February 22 and 23 at Embassy Suites Phoenix Downtown North. These workshops will delve into the Allocatee (CDE) and QALICB roles and how these parties can successfully utilize NMTCs in Native areas. A limited number of travel stipends will be made available to participants who require financial assistance to participate. These stipends will be provided to one person per participating organization on a first-come, first-served basis.
