Historic Tax Credit Training

HSF recently partnered with the Georgia Historic Preservation Division to host a training session on historic tax incentives on Decemeber 6 and 7, 2012. Forty participants from Savannah and around the state were given the opportunity to tour in-progress and recently completed tax credit projects, as well as learn the economic benefits of preservation tax incentives and how to use them from state and local experts. HSF would like to thank our title sponsor, Mopper-Stapen, Realtors, and other partners and sponsors, Quatrefoil Consulting, Georgia Historic Preservation Division, the City of Savannah and the Metropolitan Planning Commission.
