About Us

LISC’s New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) activities stimulate the investment of private capital in the distressed communities that LISC serves.

New Markets Support Company (NMSC) drives investment capital into underserved neighborhoods to spur community development. Since 2004, we've invested $860 million towards real estate developments and small businesses in distressed areas. As a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), the nation’s leading community development support organization, we deliver innovative and creative financing resources to advance LISC's strategic goals and community development efforts across the country. Since 1980, LISC has invested more than $16 billion into low-income neighborhoods. And we have built our organization on the staff expertise and back office efficiencies of LISC’s other tax credit affiliate, the National Equity Fund, the largest syndicator of Low Income Housing Tax Credits in the country.
