Support Historic Tax Credit Legislation

We have an opportunity to improve the Historic Tax Credit program that will encourage more building reuse/redevelopment and provide better access to funding for smaller rehabilitation projects. Please select the link and ask Ohio legislators to support H.R. 2294/S. 2266 – The Historic Tax Credit Growth and Opportunity Act. In 2022 Historic Preservation Tax Credits were awarded to rehabilitate 39 historic buildings in 18 Ohio communities.

This project demonstrates how even the most derelict industrial building can be brought back to life.” SLIDESHOW »
