The Community Service Tax Credit Program (CSP) provides an opportunity for private, non-profit organizations and public health care entities to improve their ability to undertake major capital campaigns for projects involving children and family services, non-governmental crime prevention, youth apprenticeship and youth technical training and health care.
Under this program, the state authorizes specially selected non-profit organizations to offer tax credits to donors making contributions to the approved projects.
Applicants may request up to $250,000 in tax credits. Applicant organizations in rural areas (< 15,000 population) are eligible for a 70 percent credit. Applicant organizations in non-rural areas are eligible for a 50 percent credit.
The CSP application period is typically April-May each year. Applications for 2021 closed May 31, 2020.
