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.
