What is a NAP Credit?

The purpose of the Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) is to encourage businesses, trusts and individuals to make donations to approved 501(c)(3) organizations for the benefit of low-income persons. The program has $15 million in tax credits where $7 million is allocated for DSS, to administer for General Human Services and $8 million is allocated for DOE to administer for Education Organizations. To be eligible for participation in the Neighborhood Assistance Program, the non-profit organization must meet set criteria in an application process.

Approved NAP organizations are awarded allocations of tax credits on a basis of proven operational success and their capacity to serve low-income persons.  These organizations provide services for their clients to include:

  • Education
  • Job training
  • Housing assistance
  • Health care clinics
  • Community services

A business may submit contributions directly to the NAP approved organization. Contributions can be in the form of:

  • Cash (check or credit card)
  • Stock
  • Merchandise
  • Real estate
  • Rent or lease of the participating nonprofits' facilities
  • Professional services
  • Contracting Services
  • Healthcare Services/Mediation Services

A Trust should follow all business donation rules. Individual or married couples are limited to contributions of cash or marketable securities. In return for their contributions, businesses, trusts and individuals may receive tax credits equal to 65 percent of the donation that may be applied against their state income tax liability.
