CHARLESTON, W.Va.—In search of funding for a historical tourism project? Two West Virginia agencies are working together to help tourism initiatives fund historic preservation projects.
The West Virginia State Historic Preservation Office and the West Virginia Department of Tourism will host a webinar on August 18 for owners and administrators of privately and publicly-owned historic buildings in West Virginia associated with tourism initiatives.
This webinar will cover historic rehabilitation tax credits, which can earn commercial building owners a 45 percent tax credit on expenses related to the rehabilitation and reuse of a historic building.
The webinar will also cover grants from the State Historic Preservation Office to assist with preservation work for historic structures.
Properties must be listed on the National Register of Historic Places to qualify for the grants and tax credits.
The program is scheduled for 2 p.m. Thursday, August 18. Registration is required. Sign-up here.
