Resources for CDC’s
The City of Philadelphia uses the Community Development Corporation (CDC) Tax Credit Program to encourage and reward local businesses making a contribution and commitment to Philadelphia CDCs and their economic development efforts in distressed parts of the City. The program is simple: in return for contributing $85,000 per year to a CDC for ten years (with yearly renewals) a business, or two businesses partnering for the total grant amount of $85,000, receive a credit of $85,000 per year against their Philadelphia Income and Receipts Tax obligation.
Applications are accepted by the Revenue Department on an annual basis when there are partnership slots available. For more information about eligible CDC or other nonprofit organizations and eligible economic development activities, contact Terrine Datts at 215-683-2167, Terrine.Datts@phila.gov.
BOOST Community Development Corporation as a qualified non-profit is actively seeking corporate and philanthropic partners for our efforts to revitalize, and remove blight and abandonment on the Lansdowne Avenue corridor and surrounding areas. We look forward to hearing from all interested parties. To paraphrase a quote from Angela Davis, We are no longer accepting the things we cannot change we are changing the things we cannot accept.
