Community Investment Tax Credits
The Community Investment Tax Credit (CITC) program supports nonprofits by awarding Maryland tax credits to indivivduals and businesses who make donations to qualified organizations.
The Homeless Persons Representation Project (HPRP) was awarded $10,000 in tax credits in support of the Clean Slate Project.
HPRP’s Clean Slate Project assists individuals facing homelessness in helping to eliminate barriers to employment and housing by expunging eligible charges from criminal records. Through collaborations with community partners providing job training and counseling to persons seeking employment, HPRP has developed a successful service model demonstrating that legal services can be effective in helping persons facing homelessness to secure employment and housing.
HPRP’s Clean Slate clients have told us: "Cried tears of joy. I was elated," said one. "I felt like a huge burden was lifted," said another. Clearly, this legal work can have a tremendous impact on an individual’s life and future.
Who Is Eligible for CITC
Individuals and businesses that have a tax liability in the state of Maryland are eligible to apply for the CITC through HPRP.
How It Works
When you make a gift of $500 or more to the HPRP Clean Slate Project, you may be eligible to receive a state tax credit equal to 50% of the value of your gift. The state tax credit is in addition to the Federal and State tax deductions.
