Paterson's Rosa Parks Neighborhood
Want to make a difference in the Rosa Parks Neighborhood? Do you have ideas about how to improve your community? Be a part of the planning process to make the Rosa Parks Neighborhood eligible for Neighborhood Revitalization tax credits (NRTC). NRTC allows residents to develop a plan and gain funding for programs and services that they have determined will make a difference in their community.
What is the NRTC Program:
The Neighborhood Revitalization Tax Credit Program (NRTC) fosters the revitalization of neighborhoods. NRTC offers business entities a 100 percent tax credit against various New Jersey state taxes in exchange for investments in improving low- and moderate-income neighborhoods according to an official Neighborhood Plan produced through a community-driven process.
What is a Neighborhood Plan:
Neighborhood plans are a comprehensive set of strategies to improve the community. The plan empowers community residents and other stakeholders to have a voice and work together to plan and implement community-driven strategies that promote change in the community. It is the ticket to access NRTC grant funds.
What does the planning process involve:
A lead non-profit organization (PCHFH) and other community stakeholders create a steering committee to guide community members through a series of community engagement activities designed to gain insight into community needs. The engagement activities include community meetings, focus group interviews, surveys, online engagement, and other planning exercises. These insights are used to create a neighborhood plan to guide the potential investment of NRTC funds.
