Tax Credit Assistance
We partner with developers utilizing Connecticut state historic tax credits. Click here to understand how we can add value to your project.
A transaction may be structured to ensure that the Trust receives the voucher (or accept as a donation) from State Historic Preservation Office (or developer) at the end of the construction period, secures the funding from Eversource in exchange for the voucher, and either lends or grants 100% of the proceeds to the owner/LP/GP/manager, or other such mechanism that your tax counsel requires. In this way, the Trust ensures that the developer receives the full value of federal and state tax credits.
Prepare your applications for our grant program, due by April 2019.
