In 2017 with the continued partnership of our client communities, NDC will work on the following Public Policy and Advocacy Priorities

Federal Community Development Tools

Our Objectives

  • Insure that Community Reinvesment Act reform increases Bank investing in both housing and community development programs
  • Support and enhance Historic Tax Credits
