Today, Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) Secretary Dennis Davin announced that applications for the Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) and the Neighborhood Assistance Program, Enterprise Zone Tax Credit (EZP) are now open for the 2020-21 program year. 

“By encouraging businesses to make impactful investments in their communities for worthy projects across the commonwealth, the Neighborhood Assistance Program plays an invaluable role in improving the lives of Pennsylvania residents,” said Sec. Davin. “By working together, we are building a bright future that unites our families, neighborhoods, and businesses.” 

Applications for the 2020-21 program year will be accepted until August 31, 2020. 

 The department will also prioritize any EZP projects that provide for the manufacturing of critical and necessary medical supplies such as masks, face shields, ventilators, and other similar products or focus on job creation. EZP is an incentive program that provides tax credits to private companies investing in rehabilitating, expanding, or improving buildings or land located within designated enterprise zones.
