State Historic Tax Credits: Repealing the Sunset 

The state's Historic Tax Credit program is scheduled to sunset on June 30 2021. There are currently bills in the House and Senate that would repeal the sunset, allowing more than 30 projects on the waiting list to continue with private investments in historic buildings. More than 300 historic buildings throughout Rhode Island have already been rehabilitated using Historic Tax Credits, representing more than $1.8 Billion in private investment.

Preserve RI has been advocating for the passage of the bills to repeal the sunset. Read our testimony here:
