State Historic Preservation Tax Credits

In advance of the 2019 legislative session, NCDDA is working proactively to engage legislators and downtown advocates to extend the historic tax credits prior to their scheduled sunsetting at the end of the 2019.  As part of a more comprehensive strategy, NCDDA will be preparing and distributing an Our State quality 64-page magazine filled with high-quality pictures and information about tax credit projects from our member communities around the state.

We need your help in providing content for the magazine!  If you have a significant downtown project or story to tell about the importance of tax credits in your downtown that can be included in our publication, please submit information about that completed project here.  Most of this publication will be filled with information regarding completed projects, but there will likely be an opportunity for some limited information about potential projects that are not feasible without historic tax credits; please submit information about potential projects here.  Please submit information from your community by November 16.  If we don’t use it in the publication, we are putting together an online version that will include all submissions.

Submit your completed historic tax credit projects at https://goo.gl/forms/LW2ZqTNPxJN7sIb32.

Submit your potential historic tax credit projects that will likely not happen without historic tax credits at https://goo.gl/forms/kLTCpNsOOWktiiW62.

We also need high quality pictures – at least 300 dpi, 600 dpi is best (cell phone pictures will not be good enough). Please add your photos (with a file name and/or comments linking it to your town/project) to the Google Drive folder at https://drive.google.com/open?id=1h_ZasctDZE67Rm8Iuc8y1-vfL6fDAoqM.

Thank you for all you do in support of our downtowns, and for your timely assistance!
