Introducing the Community Health report and data search bar, analyzing 2016 mortgage lending data, and a bunch of data updates.
If you have a list of addresses, it can be incredibly useful to find underlying geographic data for these addresses. This data might be neighborhood demographic or income conditions, or government eligibility indicators, like NMTC or CRA eligibility. This can be done easily in PolicyMap.
PolicyMap can be used to help designate Opportunity Zones, a new economic development program introduced with the recent tax bill. NMTC-eligibility can be combined with other indicators to see which areas will benefit most.
The CDFI Fund just released new guidance data to determine what areas are eligible for NMTC, and what areas qualify as being in higher distress.
New Markets Tax Credit eligibility data is on PolicyMap, along with supporting data on higher distress areas, to help complete the NMTC application.
