Connecticut Neighborhood Assistance Act (NAA) Tax Credit
The NAA Tax Credit Program is designed to provide funding for municipal and tax-exempt organizations by providing a corporation business tax credit for businesses that make cash contributions to entities. Neumann said three applications to continue energy efficiency upgrades have been received from Holcomb Farm: mini splints for the farmhouse, wiring upgrades and new fans for the greenhouses to improve air flow and Powerwall battery backup installation for greenhouses and irrigation systems. The board approved the proposals and directed staff to complete the application by July 1.
