NAP (Neighborhood Assistance Program)

We need your help.

One of our dedicated volunteers, Gene, is filling food boxes for families in need. You can see how he’s taking precautions because of Coronavirus, but he knows that without his help, families in our community could be going hungry.

New Hope just received word from the State of Pennsylvania that they will be making $2.5 million of unused business tax credits available to help with Coronavirus response through the Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP)

NAP tax credits are available to qualifying Pennsylvania businesses and offer credits worth 55% of business donations for approved projects. New Hope has been a long time beneficiary of the NAP program for our Charitable Food Program. Generous gifts from businesses like yours could help us raise $100,000 or more in needed funding to put food on the table for families impacted by Coronavirus. We would love your help, but unfortunately have a limited window and have to act now.

We don’t need your contribution until June 30, but we do need a simple letter of commitment and can help with all the necessary paperwork.

If you can help us meet our goal, please contact us today! Our staff are available to answer your questions:
