The West End Civic Association (WECA) Architectural History & Resources Committee (AH&RC) and The Connecticut Historical Society are pleased to present an information session about the Historic Homes Rehabilitation Tax Credit Program.
In hopes of sparking revitalization and stabilization in Connecticut’s urban neighborhoods and preserving the historic character of communities, the State’s Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) offers a homeowner rebate/tax credit for the rehabilitation of owner-occupied historic residential buildings containing 1-4 units.
What is the Incentive? A rebate of up to 30% of the eligible rehabilitation costs, subject to a maximum of $30,000 per unit of housing on expenditures of $15,000 or greater. This means that a single family homeowner could realize up to $30,000 returned to them and a four-family (owner-occupied) house could qualify for up to $120,000!
Who is Eligible? Properties located within a historic district are eligible if they are considered “contributing structures.”
