On January 8, 2018, Senator Bill Ferguson of Baltimore City’s District 46 announced two new pieces of legislation that, if passed, will strengthen this key revitalization and community development tool.
On Monday, January 8, 2018 at 2PM at the historic I.C. Isaacs & Co. complex, community development and preservation advocates will join with elected officials to celebrate the planned rehabilitation of the former manufacturing facility and to call on state leaders to increase funding for the state Historic Tax Credit program.
