Who We Are

Our Story

New Markets Support Company (NMSC) was founded by parent company Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) in 2004 to manage its New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) allocation at the outset of the federal program. We continue to manage LISC's $1.05 billion NMTC portofolio, working with investors and community leaders to support economic development efforts in underinvested communities.

Over the last 15 years, we have leveraged our experience in the NMTC space to develop creative financing solutions that empower underserved communities across the country and build community assets that enable everyone to realize their full potential, from healthcare and workforce development centers, to small businesses creating quality jobs and grocery stores in food deserts. We work with a wide breadth of community partners and financial institutions to better understand and address the multifaceted challenges faced by underserved communities, recognizing that every community has unique strengths and needs, as does every investment we help make in partnership with our clients.
