Tax credits to Vermont property owners and lessees for projects that enhance income-producing historic and older structures in eligible village centers and downtown areas. The federal and state tax credits are intended to help stimulate private investment, create jobs, restore buildings, and jumpstart revitalization in Vermont communities. Eligible uses of funds are for general rehabilitation, code compliance, and exterior improvements that enhance the historic character of a building or increase the safety of older and historic commercial sites.
Description of credits available through the program:
GrantWatch ID#: 172538
The amount of the credit is based on total rehabilitation costs. The federal credit is 20% of eligible rehabilitation expenses. The state credit is between 10% and 50% of eligible rehabilitation expenses. However, there is an annual cap, and selection criteria are applied to ensure the credits are allocated to projects that provide the most public benefit. When taxpayers receive allocations under both programs, the return can be as high as 70% of eligible rehabilitation expenses.
Projects selected for funding must be completed and the applicant must claim the tax credit within three years from the date of this allocation.
