Request a Grant Writer

Tax credit transfer program for Indiana nonprofit organizations to facilitate projects that improve the quality of life of local residents. Organizations will be granted state tax credits to encourage donations from residents and corporations. Eligible projects include affordable housing, counseling, child-care, educational assistance, emergency assistance, job training, medical care, recreational facilities, downtown rehabilitation, and neighborhood commercial revitalization.

Donors that receive state tax credits from an eligible non-profit organization may receive a reduction of their Indiana income tax liability valued at 50% of the amount of their donation. That means that if they donate $200 and receive tax credits for their full donation, they can receive a $100 tax credit, which is applied against their Indiana state tax liability (not their federal tax liability). That tax credit is applied when they file their next State tax returns. 

Nonprofit organizations should provide one of the following services:

  1. Neighborhood assistance (A) in the form of financial assistance, labor, material, and technical advice to aid in the physical or economic improvement of any part or all of an economically disadvantaged area.
  2. Neighborhood assistance (B) in the form of technical assistance to promote higher employment in any neighborhood in Indiana
  3. Job training that provides individuals in economically disadvantaged households or economically disadvantaged areas with vocation skills so that the individual can become employable or be able to seek a higher grade of employment
  4. Education, in the form of scholastic instruction or scholarship assistance to individuals residing in an economically disadvantaged area, which enables those individuals to prepare for better life opportunities.
  5. Counseling and advice in an economically disadvantaged area
  6. Emergency assistance in an economically disadvantaged area
  7. Medical care in economically disadvantaged area
  8. Development and/or management of recreational facilities in an economically disadvantaged area
  9. Development and/or management of housing facilities in an economically disadvantaged area
  10. Economic development assistance in an economically disadvantaged area
  11. Crime prevention or reduction (A) activities in an economically disadvantaged area
  12. Crime prevention or reduction (B) activities in economically disadvantaged households
  13. Community services, education, or job training services to individuals who are “returning citizens” who have completed criminal sentences or are serving a term of probation or parole

Estimated Total Program Funding:

$2,500,000

Estimated Size of Grant:

An organization that has participated in the Neighborhood Assistance Program in any of the three (3) preceding years may apply for a maximum of $25,000 in NAP tax credits. $25,000 of distributed credits means $50,000 in donations.

An organization that has not participated in the Neighborhood Assistance Program in any of the three (3) preceding years may only apply for a maximum of $5,000 in NAP tax credits. $5,000 in distributed credits means $10,000 in donations.

An organization must apply for a minimum of $1,000 in NAP tax credits. $1,000 distributed credits means $2,000 in donations.

Term of Contract:

Once the NAP agreement is signed and the program year starts on July 1, organizations can begin providing their NAP tax credits to donors - 60% must be distributed by December 31st, and 100% by March 31st.

Awards will be made in June, and credits must be distributed to donors between July 1, 2020 and June 4, 2021.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

To be eligible for NAP credits, an applicant must:
1) Be an Indiana Non-Profit organization in good standing with the Indiana Secretary of State.
2) Have received a ruling from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service of the United States Department of the Treasury under Internal Revenue Code 501(c)3
3) Have received a ruling of tax exemption from the Indiana Department of Revenue under IC 6-2.5-5-21.
4) Agree not to use funds raised from distributing NAP to support inherently religious activities such as worship, religious instruction or promoting religious beliefs as a part of program services. If an organization conducts religious activities, the activities must be offered separately in another time or location form the program supported by NAP funds. Clients must not be discriminated against based on religious belief or be required to attend or participate in religious activities to receive NAP-funded services.
5) Have met the benchmark reporting requirements from the last NAP round (if the applicant participated in the last NAP round); in this case, the 2019-2020 round. This means that the applicant must have distributed 60% of their credits by December 31st, 100% of their credits by March 31st, and met reporting deadlines for both.
6) Have met the last closeout reporting deadline, if the applicant received NAP credits two program rounds ago; in this case, the 2018-2019 program round, which had a September 2019 closeout report deadline.
