The Consolidated Plan is designed to be a collaborative process whereby the community establishes a unified vision for community development activities and how the City of Millville intends to use federal and non-federal resources to meet those needs. Strategic Planning and citizen participation take place in a comprehensive context during the preparation of the Five Year Consolidated Plan. Eligible activities include community facilities and improvements, housing rehabilitation and preservation, department activities, public services, economic development, historic preservation, planning, and administration.  This Consolidated Plan for the City of Millville covers the period July 1, 2020 until June 30, 2024. The Plan allows the City to continue to receive federal housing and community development funds and must be submitted to the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) by May 15, 2020.

NEIGHBORHOOD REVITALIZATION TAX CREDIT PROGRAM

The Neighborhood Revitalization Tax Credit Program (NRTC) provides business entities an 80 percent tax credit for funds provided to nonprofit entities carrying out comprehensive revitalization plans. Nonprofit entities must use at least 60% of the tax credit funds for housing and economic development; the remaining funds may be used for supportive services and other activities that promote neighborhood revitalization. 

NRTC funds are used by neighborhood-based non-profit organizations that have prepared, submitted and received approval from the Department for a revitalization plan for the neighborhood it serves. The funds must be used by the eligible organizations for projects and activities that will implement the goals and strategies of the approved neighborhood plan. The maximum amount per application is $985,000.
