The Neighborhood Assistance Act (NAA) program encourages businesses and individuals who pay Delaware state income taxes to invest in programs serving impoverished neighborhoods or serving low- and moderate-income families.  In exchange for a qualified contribution, the NAA provides state tax credits equal to 50% of the investment.  Each year a maximum of $500,000 in tax credits is available statewide.  The maximum tax credit available to any taxpaper is $50,000.

Example:  A $50,000 contribution qualifies for $25,000 in Delaware Tax Credits.
