    Looking for money for your Historic Building? 
    Do you need tax credits to reduce your federal and state tax bills? 
    Attend a Community Meeting to Discuss Resources with Local and State Experts.
    June 5th, 2019, 5:30 pm in the Natchitoches Municipal Building at 560 Second Street, Natchitoches, located between NHF Headquarters and the Central Fire Station
    If you are interested in rehabilitating a historic house or commercial building, an upcoming meeting may provide the answers you need to get started.  The Natchitoches Historic Foundation is sponsoring a program on June 5, 2019 with experts from The Louisiana Trust for Historic Preservation (LTHP), the State of Louisiana Division of Historic Preservation, the City of Natchitoches Historic District Commission, and Natchitoches Main Street.
    The presenters will discuss resources for rehabilitating historic buildings, including tax credits, historic designations and protective easements.  The evening meeting is free and open to the public.   It will cover the benefits of national and local historic districts, Louisiana State Cultural Districts, Main Street Communities and National Register listing, as well as how preservation easements can help protect properties into the future.  Another program which can result in savings on property taxes, Restoration Tax Abatement, will also be discussed.
    Louisiana Trust’s Executive Director, Brian Davis, notes, “One question asked most often is, ‘Is there money available for my building?’. The answer is ‘yes’, it may be possible for owners of historic buildings to use or sell federal and state tax credits to cover a portion of their expenses.”
    Owners or prospective owners of historic buildings or those who are interested in renovating a historic house or commercial building are encouraged to attend.  Individuals needing tax credits for state and federal taxes are also invited.
    Please come to the NHF Headquarters next door at 550 Second St. for cookies and lemonade starting at 5pm.  See what Historic Preservation can do!!
