DCED offers tax credit program for nonprofits, businesses

The Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) and Neighborhood Assistance Program- Enterprise Zone (NAP-EZP) opened April 5th, and closes on Tuesday, May 31st at 5PM. Guidelines can be found on our website and applications are submitted through the DCED’s Electronic Single Application (ESA).

The NAP program helps nonprofits complete vital community projects by providing tax credits to businesses that contribute to those efforts. Eligible projects must be geographically specific and serve a low-income population. Within the NAP program there are four subprograms – Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP), Special Program Priorities (SPP), Neighborhood Partnership Program (NPP) and Charitable Food Program (CFP). The guidelines detail the distinction between the subprogram requirements and tax credit percentages.

Please note this year corporate commitments are due on August 1st, 2022.

The attached brochure for current and potential business partners provides relevant information regarding making a contribution through NAP. Additionally you can find a contributor guide, applicant checklist and contributor checklist on the NAP webpage.

If you have any questions or if you are applying to the program for the first time please contact our office.
