“A New Markets Tax Credit investment in Wheeling, West Virginia helped bring the Wheeling Stamping Building back to life. The building was once a bustling hub of the metal stamping industry. After deteriorating and sitting dormant for decades, the New Markets Tax Credit helped finance the restoration of the building that created 300 construction jobs. Now, the building houses 350 full-time employees in a community that needs good jobs.”

Former Senator Jay Rockefeller


“The New Markets Tax Credit Program has already had a positive impact in Missouri, leading to more than $2 billion in investments and thousands of jobs.
