About the NAA

The Connecticut Neighborhood Assistance Act (NAA) Tax Credit Program is designed to provide funding for municipal and tax exempt organizations by providing a corporation business tax credit for businesses who make cash contributions to these entities. NAA is administered by the State of Connecticut Department of Revenue Services.

Under the program, businesses can receive a tax credit of their approved contribution to certain programs approved by the Department of Revenue Services.

The State of Connecticut requires participating municipalities to coordinate NAA activities.  While the NAA program is not technically a grant program, the Office of Central Grants Administration coordinates the City of Hartford's NAA activity.

Visit the CT DRS website to learn more.


How to Participate

Hartford-based municipal agencies, tax-exempt organizations and businesses wishing to participate in the NAA program should visit the CT DRS website for more information.  The State issues a brochure, which can be found here
