The Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) offers $2.5 million in tax credits annually for distribution by not-for-profit corporations. Organizations use NAP tax credits as an incentive to help them leverage more contributions from individuals and businesses for certain neighborhood-based programs and projects. Eligible projects include affordable housing, counseling, child-care, educational assistance, emergency assistance, job training, medical care, recreational facilities, downtown rehabilitation, and neighborhood commercial revitalization. All projects must benefit economically disadvantaged areas and/or persons. The NAP program follows the state fiscal year from July 1 to June 30. The maximum tax credit award per organization per fiscal year is $40,000.00. Tax credits are distributed to donors at 50% of the contribution amount and are subtracted from a donor's state income tax liability. Indiana Code 6-3.1-9 established the NAP program.
