NMTC Interactive Map Instructions

The New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) Program provides tax credits for new private sector investment in economically distressed communities by certified Community Development Entities (CDEs). This easy to use mapping tool can help you determine if a project can qualify under various criteria for the NMTC program based on its location within eligible census tracts.

This mapping tool provides eligibility data using 2006-2010 American Community Survey data. To use the map, type a census tract number or address into the search field to determine if that census tract is "qualified" under the NMTC program,  if it meets “severely distressed" criteria,  and if it qualifies under some of the CDFI Fund’s other programs.

A gray census tract indicates that the area is "Unqualified" under the NMTC program.

An orange census tract indicates that the area is "Qualified" under the NMTC program based on meeting at least one of the following two criteria:

  • Poverty rate of at least 20 percent
  • Median family income of 80 percent or less of that area’s median family income

A blue census tract indicates that area qualifies under the "Severely Distressed" criteria for the NMTC program. To qualify as "Severely Distressed", the census tract must meet at least one of following three criteria:

  • Poverty rate greater than 30 percent
  • Median family income of 60 percent or less of that area’s median family income
  • Unemployment rate at least 1.5 times the national average of 7.9% for 2006-2010 ACS Survey  
  • All non-metro tracts that qualify for the program also qualify as “Severely Distressed”

Note: Based on your search, a pop-up box will display on the map showing the eligibility information for the NMTC Program. If the search results for your project indicate that the project is "Qualified", the pop-up box will also display the words "Yes" or "No" to indicate whether it also meets " Severely Distressed" criteria.

Even if your project does not meet "Severely Distressed" criteria, your project may still be distressed. View the additional qualifiers for severely distressed census tracts.

Click on the census tract to find out more information about that area including:

  • Census tract
  • NMTC program qualification
  • Poverty rate
  • Median family ratio
  • Unemployment rate
  • State
  • Population
  • Metro or non-metro area
  • Median family income
  • Additional CDFI Fund Programs qualification: Hot zone, type of hot zone, investment area, Bank Enterprise (BEA) Award (2000 census only)

Click on the "Full Screen" button on the top right of the map to enlarge the map on your screen. Also, the map must be in "Full Screen" view if you wish to print or e-mail your search results.
