Does your project need a creative solution for funding? Our panel of experts will share the nuances behind applying for and securing Historic Tax Credit Funding. The historic fabric of our communities adds character and a unique sense of place to our neighborhoods. Renovations of historic buildings enliven dormant spaces and revitalize districts. Utilizing Historic Tax Credits- federal and state- on a renovation provides critical funding resources to help make it a reality.
