The purpose of the forum is to promote awareness of the New Market Tax Credit (NMTC) program among bankers, community development organizations, and local government entities. A panel of experts will discuss the opportunities to participate in NMTC-financed projects and the partners required to bring these projects to fruition. FDIC staff will provide an overview of a resource guide designed to help banks identify opportunities to collaborate with Community Development Financial Institutions.   Participants will hear an update from the Consumer Protection Financial Board on issues affecting Nevada financial institutions and an update on the newly issued Interagency Community Reinvestment Act Q&As.
