SOLD OUT - Crafting the Historic Tax Credit Deal

Historic tax credits are an important part of the capital stack for many Texas developers to offset the costs associated with rehabilitating historic buildings. The Texas Historic Preservation Tax Credit program, enacted in 2015, is worth 25 percent of eligible rehabilitation costs for buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and the federal historic tax credit allows for an additional 20 percent. 

Preservation Houston and MacRostie Historic Advisors are hosting a panel of experts in the field to walk you through the basics of these tax credit programs and how to structure historic tax credit deals. Panelists will use local case studies to highlight the process and important issues to consider when working with these financing tools.

Massachusetts Historic Preservation Conference 2019 | "Untold Stories in Preservation"

Preservation Massachusetts presents their annual statewide preservation conference that will include a session led by MHA CEO Albert Rex at the end of the day:

Getting Past Feasibility Study Fatigue: What to Do when Your Preservation Project Just Won’t Move

No money. Political obstacles. Lots of meetings. In so many towns, the story’s the same: an historic property that everyone loves but can’t figure out how to save. Yet despite these challenges, it’s possible to reposition historic buildings and districts for new investment and long-term sustainability. Using the North Brookfield Town House as a case study, we’ll offer steps for raising a property’s visibility, attracting strategic partners, and crafting a vision that reflects the community’s shared histories and aspirations. Preservation organizations, economic development institutions, and municipalities can all learn from one small, rural town’s success in taking a project from infeasible to feasible.
