Neighborhood Revitalization Tax Credit (NRTC) Program Overview

The Neighborhood Revitalization Tax Credit Program (NRTC) is designed to foster the revitalization of New Jersey’s distressed neighborhoods. The Program offers business entities a 100 percent tax credit against New Jersey state business tax obligations. Credits are provided to business entities that invest in the revitalization of low and moderate-income neighborhoods through a community based non-profit agency that has a NJ Department of Community Affairs (DCA)- approved neighborhood revitalization plan.

A total of $10 million per year is available in tax credits statewide, which is expected to leverage more than $100 million in total grants, loans and equity investments in those neighborhoods.
