Pursuant to I.R.C. § 45D, the Department of the Treasury, through the CDFI Fund, administers NMTC, which provides an incentive to investors in the form of tax credits over seven years, which stimulates the provision of private investment capital that, in turn, facilitates economic and community development in low-income communities. In order to qualify for an allocation of NMTC authority, an entity must be certified as a qualified community development entity and submit an allocation application to the CDFI Fund. Upon receipt of such applications, the CDFI Fund conducts a competitive review process to evaluate applications for the receipt of NMTC allocations. Entities receiving an NMTC allocation must enter into an allocation agreement with the CDFI Fund. The allocation agreement contains the terms and conditions, including all reporting requirements, associated with the receipt of a NMTC allocation. The CDFI Fund requires each allocatee to use an electronic data collection and submission system, known as the allocation tracking system, to report on the information related to its receipt of a Qualified Equity Investment. The CDFI Fund has developed the allocation tracking system to, among other things: (1) Enhance the allocatee’s ability to report to the CDFI Fund timely information regarding the issuance of its Qualified Equity Investments; (2) enhance the Treasury Department’s ability to monitor the issuance of Qualified Equity Investments to ensure that no allocatee exceeds its allocation authority, and to ensure that Qualified Equity Investments are issued within the timeframes required by the allocation agreement and NMTC regulations; and (3) provide the Treasury Department with basic investor data which may be aggregated E:\FR\FM\01MRN1.SGM 01MRN1 9276 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 39 / Monday, March 1, 2010 / Notices and analyzed in connection with NMTC evaluation efforts.
