What is the Community Investment Tax Credit Program? The Community Investment Tax Credit program (CITC) is a program of the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development that provides tax incentives to encourage Maryland individual residents and/or business entities to support qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofits - such as the Home Builders Care Foundation (HBCF) - that are working to improve our communities. Tax credits are awarded annually by the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development on a competitive basis to 501c3 nonprofit organizations that sponsor community activities in Priority Funding Areas. Please see www.givemaryland.org for more information on the program.
How does the CITC work? When you make a qualified donation of $500 or more to HBCF for our Shelter-Related Construction Assistance Program, you may be eligible to receive a Maryland CITC tax credit equal to half the value of your donation if tax credits are available. CITC tax credits are equal to 50% of the value of the donated money, goods or real property and are IN ADDITION to Federal and State charitable tax deductions as a result of the contribution.
Individuals and businesses contemplating a donation are encouraged to consult with their tax professional for information about their specific tax benefits, based on their situation.

your gift must be at least $500. State tax credits begin at $250 (50%)
