Pennsylvania Advocates Press for Rehab Grant Incentives

The National Trust and preservation advocates in Pennsylvania are pressing their state legislators and the governor to pass HB 221, a bill that would provide grant incentives to buyers and sellers of historic homes, homes in historic neighborhoods, or commercial properties in downtown areas throughout Pennsylvania when they are rehabilitated for reuse. Advocates are being urged to contact their senators and representatives, as well as Governor Ed Rendell (D), to express their support for the bill which provides $5 million in grants for rehabbing residential properties and $10 million for commercial projects. Maximum project grants would be $15,000 for residential and $500,000 for commercial properties. In addition, advocates are encouraging a line item in the Governor's budget to implement funding for HR 221's preservation incentives.
