      Design Standards for Historic Buildings & Historic Preservation Incentive

      On May 21st beginning at 1:00pm the Pennsylvania State Historic Preservation Office and Preservation Pittsburgh welcome you to a workshop regarding the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation and the Rehabilitation Investment Tax Credit program, presented by Scott Doyle and Shawn Massey of PA SHPO.  Historic tax credits and Keystone grants are vital tools in revitalizing older buildings, neighborhoods, and communities. These financial incentives encourage private investment, create jobs, and return abandoned or underutilized properties to active service. Successful projects balance the building’s and neighborhood’s historic character with the property’s new or continued use by using the National Park Service’s Standards for Rehabilitation as guidance.  How can architects, design professionals, communities, and property owners take advantage of these programs? Join Preservation Pittsburgh and the Pennsylvania State Historic Preservation Office for this workshop to learn more about these important state and federal incentive programs.  Agenda includes:  • Understanding and applying the National Park Service’s Standards for Rehabilitation to historic properties, • Overview of the federal and state historic tax credit programs including program eligibility, the application & review process, and a best practices case study, and • Introduction to Pennsylvania’s Keystone Historic Preservation Grant program.  Free Registration is requested by Friday, May 17 Event Location:Rodef Shalom CongregationLevi Hall4905 5TH AVENUE / PITTSBURGH, PA 15213 Free Off Street Parking is Available  For more information, please contact Bill Callahan, PA SHPO’s Western Region Community Preservation Coordinator wcallahan@pa.gov412-565-3575  Event Sponsored byPreservation Pittsburgh and the Pennsylvania State Historic Preservation Office
