PolicyMap Releases NMTC Widget

PolicyMap is an online data and mapping tool which relies on Geographic Information Systems technology. PolicyMap is used by our parent organization, The Reinvestment Fund, to guide investments in low-income communities.

PolicyMap offers free widgets to organizations interested in tracing a particular issue. For Novogradac, a national certified public accounting and consulting firm, PolicyMap created a customized NMTC widget.

Users can view NMTC eligibility based on primary criteria like poverty rates, family income and unemployment, or secondary eligibility criteria, such as a site’s inclusion of a Brownfield or location in a Medically Underserved Area. Novogradac’s widget also includes data about specific NMTC investments previously made around the country.
