2018 CITC Awards Announced

On Tuesday, April 3rd, Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito announced $5.9 million in allocations to 46 CDCs through the Community Investment Tax Credit program.  Over the program’s first four years, $34.5 million was raised for critical community development programs that directly benefit low- and moderate-income families across Massachusetts.  These funds are helping CDCs to work with residents in their communities by providing vital affordable housing options, access to services and capital for aspiring entrepreneurs as well as programs and services to ensure that community residents can not only become stabilized, but thrive and benefit from our Commonwealth’s economy.

“The Community Investment Tax Credit Program is a unique tool to encourage private investment,” said Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito. “From instituting new lead paint programming in Central Massachusetts, to bringing on a full-time community planner in Boston’s Chinatown, our CDCs have leveraged significant funding to bring impactful programming to communities across the Commonwealth.”

Commenting on the 2018 CITC allocation, MACDC’s President Joe Kriesberg said, “It is truly exciting to see what happens when banks, hospitals and individuals work together to make their communities a better place to live. Today, because of their collective belief and investment in their local community development corporations, millions of Massachusetts residents, regardless of their socio-economic status in life, will see demonstrative improvements to their neighborhoods and share in the benefits of Massachusetts’ success. For those unable to participate in the CITC for this year’s tax filing, be sure to visit the MACDC website to learn about how you can get involved next year.”
