The purpose of this program is to promote community development using historic preservation as a tool. Support will be provided for historic properties redevelopment programs, defined as active real estate-based programs for protecting endangered properties using techniques such as options, purchase/resale, easements, and tax credits. For these programs, historic structures are ultimately returned to the private sector with deed restrictions in place, and any proceeds realized from transactions are “recycled” to sustain the proactive preservation efforts of the program. Eligible activities include:
  1. Feasibility studies for established preservation organizations that are considering starting historic properties redevelopment programs
  2. Increasing the capacity of existing historic properties redevelopment programs
