According to the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the federal Historic Tax Credit program (HTC) has helped preserve more than 41,270 historic buildings across the nation.

 

ABOUT THE HTC PROGRAM

Enacted in 1976, the Historic Tax Credit program was established by the United States government to encourage and incentivize the preservation and rehabilitation of historically significant buildings across the nation that would otherwise be lost. The federal HTC program provides a reduction of tax liability for income-producing entities wishing to revitalize abandoned historic places or adaptively reuse historic spaces. HTCs can be available at both the federal and state level, depending on the property's location.
