The Federal Historic Preservation Tax Incentives Program, administered by the National Park Service in partnership with the State Historic Preservation Offices, is the nation’s most effective program to promote historic preservation and community revitalization through historic rehabilitation. With over 40,380 completed projects since its inception in 1976, the program has generated over $73 billion in the rehabilitation of income-producing historic properties. The largest federal program specifi cally supporting historic preservation, the historic tax credit also generates much needed jobs, enhances property values in older communities, creates affordable housing, and augments revenue for Federal, state and local governments. The widely recognized program has been instrumental in preserving historic places that give cities, towns, and communities their special character.
