New Report from PlaceEconomics Calls for Investing in Older Housing to Create Post COVID-19 Resiliency
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: Preservation Action
Website: https://www.placeeconomics.com/resources/reinvesting-in-older-housing-a-key-component-of-post-covid-19-resiliency/

This week PlaceEconomics, the private sector consulting that focuses on the economic impact of historic preservation, released a new report on the important role investing in older housing could play in creating more resilient neighborhoods, in the post COVID-19 world. The report argues that future economic recovery efforts should have multiple impacts: COVID-19 recovery, stimulate the economy, address the affordable housing crisis, build resilient systems, and invest in long-term assets. One investment that checks all of those boxes is in investing in older housing.

The report lays out 4 policy proposals for the next round of stimulus spending in response to the coronavirus, that would all meet the criteria laid out above. 
  • Provide local governments with funds to invest in older housing stock.
  • Adopt a Historic Homeowners Tax Credit Program.
  • Expand the Federal Rehabilitation Tax Credit to benefit smaller projects.
  • Create job training program for rehabilitation trades.
Check out the "Reinvesting in Older Housing- A Key Component of Post COVID-19 Resiliency" report from PlaceEconomics to learn more!
