Proposed Budget Cuts Jeopardize Job-Creating Projects

Preservation Maryland voiced serious concern for proposed cuts to programs that support community and economic development through historic preservation. In a proposed budget released on January 23, the Hogan administration announced cuts to several programs in both future and existing funding.

The proposed budget would slash $2 million of the appropriation to the Sustainable Communities Tax Credit over the course of 2015 and 2016. The tax credit is a job-creating program that supports private sector investment in historic buildings across the state.

According to a recent report by the Abell Foundation, for every $1 of tax credits issued through the Sustainable Communities Tax Credit program, $8.53 of economic activity are generated. Additionally, according to the same study, on average, every $1 million worth of state investment in the program creates nearly 72.5 jobs. Thus, by cutting $2 million worth of tax credits – the state could lose $17,000,000 worth of economic activity and nearly 150 jobs.
