Historic Building Preservation Banner

Historic tax credits and Keystone grants are vital tools in revitalizing older buildings, neighborhoods, and communities. These financial incentives encourage private investment, create jobs, and return abandoned or underutilized properties to active service. Successful projects balance the building’s and neighborhood’s historic character with the property’s new or continued use by using the National Park Service’s Standards for Rehabilitation as guidance.

May 24th from 1:00 – 4:00 pm
Rodef Shalom Synagogue
Registration is requested by Friday, May 17th
