What is a historic property redevelopment program or a revolving loan fund? How can your organization transform older properties into homes, businesses, and assets for your community?
A historic properties redevelopment program (revolving fund) is an active real estate-based program for protecting endangered properties using techniques such as: options, purchase/resale, easements and tax credits. These historic structures ultimately are returned to the private sector with deed restrictions in place. Any proceeds realized from transactions are “recycled” to sustain the proactive preservation efforts of the program. The goal of these programs is community redevelopment using historic preservation as a tool.
A project of The 1772 Foundation and the National Preservation Partners Network, a new online resource guide is a compilation of practical experience, profiles, and tools to inspire, inform, and aid. It is also a work in progress. As more sections are written, functionality will be increased, so check back often. Have a project, story, model, or tool you want to share? Email email@example.com
