The Covid Pandemic has disproportionately affected low-income communities and their residents.  Even more than a year into the pandemic and despite large economic stimulus efforts, unemployment remains high in low-income communities, by some indices, more than double the unemployment rate of the population at large.  The New Markets Tax Credit, set forth in Section 45D of the Internal Revenue Code, was enacted with bipartisan support in 2001 and recently extended for an additional five years, as an incentive to create jobs and spur economic growth in low-income communities.  Economic investment in low-income communities, encouraged by New Markets Tax Credits, can significantly enhance economic growth and accelerate the recovery from severe job losses in the low-income communities.
