Save the Date: NDC Academy 2015



Washington Marriott Georgetown
1221 22nd Street NW
Washington  DC  20037

Join over 500 community development practitioners from over 40 states and 230 communities at NDC Academy 2015. Development finance programs are under attack in Washington and NDC Academy 2015 will bring together state and local officials, public and private policy makers and elected officials to better understand, utilize and advocate for critical tools like New Markets Tax Credits, Low-Income Housing Tax Credits, HUD 108 loan guarantees and more. NDC Academy 2015 will focus on how these program not only produce benefits to the communities where they are employed, but ultimately, by creating quality, long-lasting jobs, produce enough local, state and federal tax revenue to more than offset their costs.

The NDC Academy's unique structure allows for a synergistic flow between attendees and government officials. We combine in-depth training for practitioners, indispensable networking events and a forum for attendees to have a voice on Capitol Hill. And again in 2015, our Project Awards Showcase will celebrate the important and innovative community development projects from our colleagues across the country, and introduce Academy participants to the deal-doers themselves.
