New Market Tax Credit & Opportunity Zones

New Market Tax Credits (NMTC) are a tool for creating jobs in markets where economic growth has been a challenge.

The NMTC program was established as part of the Community Renewal Tax Relief Act of 2000. The goal of the program is to spur revitalization efforts of low-income and impoverished communities across the United States. The NMTC Program provides additional capital to projects located in low-income communities that provide impactful community benefits.

Twenty-five areas including all of Platte County, have already been approved by Governor Mead as Opportunity Zones. For a full list of the Opportunity Zones in Wyoming, select the first article below.
