New Markets Support Company (NMSC) delivers creative financing solutions to empower underserved communities across the country. We increase access to capital by tailoring our products and services to meet the needs of our clients and partners. Over the past 15 years, we've invested more than $1 billion in distressed communities.
We are a subsidiary of the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), one of the country's largest community development financial institutions. NMSC and LISC are currently working towards the successful implementation of the new Opportunity Zones program, providing guidance through its inaugural stages and access to resources and tools.
The Urban Institute published an analysis of Opportunity Zone designations as of May 2018, evaluating the needs of the communities in selected census tracts and their potential to benefit from Opportunity Zone tax incentives.
LISC New Markets project, Barnett Tower, is featured in the May 2018 issue of the Novogradac Journal of Tax Credits. Vacant for decades, the former largest bank in Florida will be converted into commercial space and affordable housing in downtown Jacksonville.
A thoughtful piece by Enterprise Community Partners president Laurel Blatchford on the potential of Opportunity Zones - good and bad - and what states and communities can do now to ensure this new economic development tool works for residents of low-income communities, and not against them.
