The Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Fund announced that under the 2012 round of the New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) program it had received 282 applications requesting an aggregate of $21.9 billion in NMTC authority. The CDFI Fund also described innovative uses of New Markets Tax Credit Authroity which would be favored by the CDFI Fund. Innovative uses of NMTC Authority include the deployment of New Markets Tax Credit proceeds to underserved states, "qualified low-income community investments" ("QLICs") of $2,000,000 or less, non-real estate QLICIs such as working capial and equipment loans, and revolving QLICs which would serve multiple "qualified active low-income community businesses". In this vein, the emphasis on non-real estate QLICIs was recently supported by final NMTC Treasury Regulations which facilitate the redeployment of non-real estate QLICIs.
