   New Markets Tax Credit Software: NewDL

  • The New Markets Data Link, NewDL, is our one-of-a-kind software platform and community development database. NewDL 2.0 - an updated and improved version of our platform to better serve our clients - was released in Fall 2017. We lease NewDL to other CDEs to help them manage their allocation.
  • We specifically designed NewDL to manage NMTC investments, allowing users to capture and track QEI, QLICI, and QALICB data on a secure web platform. 
  • NewDL allows you to create custom reports to track your portfolio's community impacts, allocation status, investment concentration, QLICI rates and terms, and more.
  • The system allows you to upload Community Investment Impact System (CIIS) data directly to the CDFI Fund.
  • See our YouTube channel to preview some of NewDL's features.
