CHW was mentioned because of their joint work with Novogradac and consultant Rise Community Capital, in getting the National Comedy Center (NCC) set up with a new markets tax credit (NMTC) allocation. The NCC is set to open next summer in Jamestown, NY. It is expected to bring at least 100,000 visitors each year to Jamestown, resulting in a $23 million annual boost to the local economy, which has an unemployment rate of nearly 14% and a poverty rate that’s double the national average.
