Enterprise Zone/Non-Profit Project Application
The purpose of the Enterprise Zone Non-profit Program is to encourage non-profit organizations to develop projects that have a positive community and economic impact in rural Enterprise Zone Areas
(Areas populated in red).
Enterprise Zone Non-Profit Application Process Calendar:
An Enterprise Zone Non-profit Project must be approved by the legislative body of the county or of the municipality where the Project is located or is proposed to be located. The legislative body of the county is the commission or council, and in a municipality it would be the town/city council. The Project must be presented to them prior to completing the application. A copy of the agenda and minutes wherein the Project was presented will be required as a part of the application.
Eligible non-profit organizations must apply to the Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) on or before July 1, 2019.
The Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) will review each application received by July 1, 2019, and will submit eligible applications to the Governor’s Rural Partnership Board on or before August 1, 2019.
The Governor’s Rural Partnership Board will review eligible applications and, on or before September 1, 2019, they will provide a list of approved projects to the GOED office along with the assigned amount of non-profit contribution tax credits available to donors that make contributions toward each approved project.
Upon the non-profit's project approval, GOED will provide the non-profit corporation with a document describing the approved amount of non-profit contribution tax credits available to donors (a tax credit certificate) who make contributions to the non-profit corporation for an approved project, along with the non-profit corporation's requirements for post-performance reporting to the office and filing instructions for claimants to receive a tax credit.
