Welcome to the Town of Groton, Connecticut

Connecticut Neighborhood Assistance Act Program

The Neighborhood Assistance Act (NAA) is a State program administered by the Department of Revenue Services that allows businesses to claim a State corporate tax credit for cash contributions made to qualifying community programs conducted by tax exempt or municipal agencies. The types of community programs that qualify for the NAA tax credit program include, but are not necessarily limited to: energy conservation; employment and training; child care services; neighborhood assistance; substance abuse; open space acquisition; crime prevention programs and affordable housing development.

Businesses can receive a credit of 60% of their approved contribution to certain programs (or 100% in the case of certain energy conservation programs) approved by the Department of Revenue Services. The minimum contribution on which a tax credit may be granted is $250, and the maximum contribution that any non-profit or municipal entity can receive under this program is $150,000. There are no Town funds involved in the program, and participation in the NAA program does not guarantee receipt of any funding.

For more information please see the Connecticut Department of Revenue Services- Neighborhood Assistance Act website.
