The Historic Preservation Office (HPO) announces the publication of a study entitled “Leveraging Federal Economic Development Resources with State Historic Rehab Tax Credits.” The study was prepared by Jeffrey Oakman and Marvin Ward, both fiscal analysts for the District’s Chief Financial Officer. The study looks to quantify the role that state rehabilitation tax credits play in attracting the use of the federal rehabilitation tax program to a state. In addition, the report examines various program design elements across the states to determine their impact on the success of the programs. The authors find some intriguing results that should prove useful for policymakers and advocates:
