As a result of Preservation Maryland and its many partners’ ongoing and sustained advocacy, $9 million more historic tax credit projects were recently funded across Maryland. As a result, over $180 million worth of projects will move forward – underscoring the importance of preservation advocacy. However, the lack of geographic diversity in the projects awarded highlights the continued need for more funding in the program.
Today marks the start of the 439th Session of the Maryland General Assembly, and Preservation Maryland is poised to continue to be the voice of historic preservation in Annapolis. We have a full slate of priorities in support of historic tax credits, community revitalization, preservation funding, and smart growth.
