Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) Credits
Frequently Asked Questions
What are NAP credits?
NAP credits are awarded by the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority to non-profit organizations that serve economically disadvantaged populations. NAP credits are great for both the donor and the agency as the donor is eligible for a tax credit through the State of Indiana of up to 50% of the contribution. Unlike a tax deduction, NAP credits are applied to your Indiana state tax liability.
How much do I have to give in order to qualify for NAP credits?
Your donation must be at least $100 in order to be eligible to receive NAP credits. You may donate in smaller increments and be able to qualify for NAP credits once your total contribution for the term (7/1/17 to 12/30/17) equals at least the minimum $100 donation. However, NAP credits are not secured until your donation equals $100 and are awarded on a first come, first serve basis. Donations can be made by cash, check, credit card, or United Way donor designation.
