Community Connections through the Community Investment Tax Credit Program

Be an active participant in the Commonwealth’s Community Investment Tax Credit Program (CITC), locate a participating Community Partner and learn more about their goals, activities, and the constituents they serve by selecting their Community Investment Plan (CIP) in the table below.  

The Community Investment Tax Credit (CITC) was created by Chapter 238 of the Acts of 2012.   CITC is designed to enable local residents and stakeholders to work with and through community development corporations (CDCs) to partner with nonprofit, public, and private entities to improve economic opportunities for low and moderate income households and other residents in urban, rural, and suburban communities across the Commonwealth.  CDCs accomplish this through adoption of community investment plans to undertake community development programs, policies, and activities.

The Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) is the administering agency for CITC and is responsible for managing the process by which the credits are allocated to eligible CDCs.  The CITC will be available in calendar years 2014 through 2019.
