About Rural Development Partners

As a CDE with a national service area, RDP is eligible to apply for an annual allocation of Federal New Markets Tax Credits (NMTCs). From 2004 through 2020, RDP has won ten NMTC awards from the U.S. Treasury totaling $656.7 million. RDP works to combine NMTCs with bank loans and tax credit investor funds to create more favorable financing solutions than are available through conventional lending and investing. To date, RDP has used NMTC financing to help more than 35 businesses and nonprofits across the nation complete projects that provide access to quality jobs and healthy foods. View our Impact
