McClinton announces $80K tax credit for ACHIEVEability

HARRISBURG, Nov. 18 – State Rep. Joanna McClinton, D-Phila./Delaware, announced Monday that an $80,000 state tax credit been awarded to ACHIEVEability.

“Programs that serve our community by helping our residents get stable employment are doing awesome work,” McClinton said. “This $80,000 will allow ACHIEVEability to make investments in this community that are returned many times over through its WorkSmart West Philly program, which aims to connect people with stable employment.

“More than 25% of families in the 191st Legislative District are living below the poverty line,” McClinton added. “This award will mark the first step toward positive change for many of those families by helping people get connected to workforce development programming, job coaching and other services that will allow them to join the workforce.”

The tax credit announced Monday is through the Neighborhood Assistance Program, or NAP, which is administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development. It’s intended to encourage businesses to invest in projects which improve distressed areas or support neighborhood conservation.
