New Markets Tax Credit Data Request

The New Markets Tax Credit program supports Low-Income Community development. The CDFI Fund, who administers the program puts out a monthly "QEI Investment Report". This is a very useful report, and contains a lot of great information.

 

The issue is that it is distributed in PDF format. This is fine for those who read it, but if you want to run any kind of analytics on the data, it must be first be extracted from the PDF.

 

I have requested a couple times to get the report in CSV or xls format so i can either open it as a spreadsheet, or import the data into a database. So far, I haven't been able to talk to anyone in IT who can really help with the request.

 

So I'm looking for someone who can help me get that information, as raw data, on an monthly, updated basis, in a format other than PDF.

 

My plan is build a web front end that would be beneficial to anyone who is interested in New Markets Tax Credits.

 

Thanks!

John
