Program Description

Currently, the PA historic tax credit program is capped at only $5 million annually, a highly inadequate sum given the demand for historic rehabilitation projects around the Commonwealth. Thirty-seven states have enacted historic tax credit programs, with sixteen having no annual cap at all. The average cap of those that do is $36 million. In addition, the PA program cannot be used by homeowners or non-profits as in many other states. Now is the time for Pennsylvania to strengthen its historic tax credit program!
