<h1>The West Virginia Neighborhood Investment Program Act (WV Code \u00a711-13J) provides credit to individuals and private sector businesses which make eligible contributions to community-based nonprofit organizations that establish projects to assist neighborhoods and local communities.<\/h1>\r\nThese projects provide services such as health care, counseling, emergency assistance, crime prevention, education, housing, job training and physical and environmental improvements. This program was established by the West Virginia Legislature to encourage charitable giving to local nonprofit organizations. By donating to approved NIP organizations, contributors can support their communities and earn credits to reduce certain West Virginia taxes.\r\n\r\nCommunities in Schools of Greenbrier County (CISGC) is pleased to announce they have received $5,000 in NIP credits this year. CISGC was established in 2006, and is the only program of its kind in West Virginia. Currently, the organization services eight of the thirteen schools in Greenbrier County, offering free services to at-risk students, helping bridge the gap between chronic absenteeism, low self-esteem, academic failure to drop outs by empowering students to succeed in school and in life.\r\n\r\nIf you are interested in using Communities in Schools of Greenbrier County\u2019s NIP credits, please contact Director, Amber McHale at 304-661-1018 or email her at email@example.com.
