NCL has been working diligently to help local businesses achieve their goal to preserve, restore, and rehabilitate historic buildings in Napa County by working with them to apply for Federal Historic Preservation Tax Incentives.
The Federal Historic Preservation Tax Incentives program encourages private sector investment in the rehabilitation and re-use of historic buildings. It creates jobs and is one of the nation’s most successful and cost-effective community revitalization programs. It has leveraged over $69 billion in private investment to preserve 39,600 historic properties since 1976. The National Park Service and the Internal Revenue Service administer the program in partnership with State Historic Preservation Offices.
2015 has been an amazing year so far and we are looking forward to helping guide many more local residents to achieve their goals to protect and reinvest in the heritage of Napa County. Read more about what is happening now!
