Release of 2012 NMTC Application to be Delayed by the CDFI Fund

The CDFI Fund had indicated that it would disseminate the 2012 NOAA and the New Markets Tax Credit allocation application absent the enactment of legislation to extend the Federal New Markets Tax Credit Program. It had been anticipated that the time table for the 2012 NOAA, and the distribution and return of the application for New Markets Tax Credit allocation would parallel the schedule employed by the CDFI Fund last year. However, the New Markets Tax Credit Coalition recently reported that the CDFI Fund advised it that release of the 2012 New Markets Tax Credit allocation application will not occur by the end of May as originally anticipated. Further, the New Markets Tax Credit Coalition was advised that the release of the 2012 NOAA and application is unlikely to occur by the end of June. The delay of the release of the 2012 NOAA and the New Markets Tax Credit application by the CDFI Fund may result in awards being made as late as the summer of 2013.
