With both downtown Lincoln and downtown Sylvan Grove achieving historic designations soon, property owners within those districts will be able to apply for historic tax credits and grants to help maintain and improve their properties. Tax credits can assist with anything from replacing a hot water heater or furnace to repointing masonry and replacing a roof. There is a process to getting the tax credits though so it’s important to know what you need to do BEFORE doing the work.
Kristen Johnston from the Kansas Historical Society who administers the state and federal historic tax credit program will be the presenter.
This workshop is ideal for any property owner (business owner, non-profit organization or home owner) that owns an older property. Even if your property hasn’t been designated as historic, understanding these programs can help you decide if you want to go through the designation process or not.
