Overall, CDFIs received allocations totaling $1.855 billion and 37 percent of the allocatees are CDFIs. This is the highest dollar amount ever awarded to CDFIs under the program and it’s the first round with $5 billion in allocations available — a $1.5 billion increase over the previous $3.5 billion level.  

The NMTC program is set to expire on December 31, 2025, with $5 billion in allocations available each year. Bills to extend the NMTC program indefinitely were introduced in the House and Senate last year with bipartisan support in both chambers.  

OFN continues to advocate for Congress to make the NMTC permanent by including the NMTC Extension Act of 2021 (H.R. 1321 and S. 456), along with provisions authorizing additional allocation for Tribal Statistical Areas and U.S. Territories, in the end of the year legislative package.
