Last year, the NMTC program was extended through 2025 with $5 billion in allocations available each year.

OFN continues to advocate for Congress to make the NMTC permanent and to include NMTC permanence in the infrastructure bill. OFN is pleased that the House Ways and Means Committee has included NMTC permanence in their bill.
