Indianapolis, IN – The Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI) announced Thursday, February 24, 2011 that Krieg DeVault client, Indianapolis Redevelopment CDE, has been selected as one of 99 national community development entities (CDEs) to receive allocation dollars of New Markets Tax Credits (NMTCs) through the 2010 round of the NMTC program. Indianapolis Redevelopment CDE will receive $32 Million of the $3.5 Billion awarded.

Indianapolis Redevelopment CDE will leverage its 2010 NMTC allocation to actively bring jobs to the city, develop projects related to numerous economic and business development activities, and promote current and future growth within Marion County.

Additionally, Indianapolis Redevelopment CDE will be involved in projects that revitalize entire neighborhoods and produce benefits for Low-Income Persons and residents of Low-Income Communities.
