MuniStrategies is an impact-driven, specialty finance firm that provides access to capital through unique, below market rate financing for the creation and growth of businesses in distressed communities throughout the Southeast.
We are a Community Development Entity (CDE) as recognized through the Department of Treasury to participate in New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) financing and have deployed $128 million in allocation authority. These projects have totaled over $600 million in total investment, have created 2,374 jobs and have attracted commitment of an additional $1,300,000 in workforce development spending on scholarships and internships.
Our focus is investing primarily in advanced manufacturing, healthcare and agri-businesses in rural, low-income communities in the Southeastern United States. Our service area – Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Arkansas and Georgia – includes some of most persistent rural poverty areas in the country where access to capital continues to be a challenge.
Our entrepreneurial staff works closely with organizations like the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC), the Delta Regional Authority (DRA) and other regional and local stakeholders to create quality jobs, further workforce development strategies, improve access to quality healthcare and advance the impact of local development efforts.
