UB Community Development LLC (UBCD), a Community Development partner of United Bank, manages awards on behalf of United Bank and United Bancorporation of Alabama, Inc. New Markets Tax Credit is a federal tax credit program enacted by Congress in 2000, designed to stimulate private investment in low income urban neighborhoods and rural communities.
In 2016, United Bancorporation of Alabama became the only CDE headquartered in Alabama to receive a New Markets Tax Credit allocation. This $65MM allocation was made possible because of United Bank’s designation as a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) and UBCD’s designation as a Community Development Entity (CDE) with a mission to bring economic viability to rural areas.
In 2017, following the successful deployment of more than $90MM in New Markets Tax Credit, UB Community Development received an additional $55MM allocation of New Markets Tax Credit. UBCD also manages $40MM of funding as part of its Community Facilities Lending Program, as well as a $4MM Capital Magnet Fund award. These allocations further validate our team’s extensive expertise and passion for bringing community oriented economic development projects to qualifying areas.
UBCD uses the New Markets Tax Credit program to help fund small businesses and finance projects related to education, healthcare, manufacturing, hospitality, non-profits and community centers. The projects funded through UBCD’s New Markets Tax Credit are creating jobs in communities, providing goods, services and housing options and improving access to quality healthcare and affordable food options in low income areas.
Our past performance and experience in NMTC transactions coupled with our passion for improving the world around us, make UBCD Alabama’s premier financial partner for rural economic and community development.
