Claremont MillsCapital Regional Development Council, CRDC, has partnered with Coastal Enterprises, Inc. (CEI) of Portland, Maine to market and package New Market Tax Credit (NMTC) projects in New Hampshire. Established to attract capital to historically underserved projects and communities, the NMTC provides an incentive to debt and equity investors by offering a 39 percent federal income tax credit over seven years.  Eligibility requires individuals or corporate entities to invest capital into qualified projects in eligible areas.  To identify and structure suitable projects, CEI has selected CRDC as its sole New Hampshire partner. Impactful projects with total project budgets that exceed $10.0 million are ideal candidates.

CRDC has partnered with CEI on four New Market Tax Credit Projects since 2007 totaling $41.6 million in new investment.
