That sounds almost too good to be true, doesn’t it? But it is!
With a donation of $500 or more in support of MHP’s Community Life Programs, you can participate in the Community Investment Tax Credit Program, which makes you eligible to:

- Make a targeted community impact by supporting Community Life Programs
What is the Community Investment Tax Credit Program?
The Community Investment Tax Credit program, or CITC, is a program of the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development that provides tax incentives to encourage Maryland business entities and/or residents to support nonprofit’s, like MHP, that are working to improve our community.
MHP’s tax credits support Community Life Programs for low-income families right here in Montgomery County. These programs served more than 1,200 people last year with preschools, homework clubs, teen and summer enrichment programs, adult programs and events. Deep funding cuts have put these programs in peril. The CITC program gives you an incentive to help us make up the shortfall and keep providing these much-needed programs.
