April 23, 2024: Gap Funding for Historic Preservation, And More

Published by Michael J. Novogradac on April 23, 2024, 12:58 p.m.

Many developers are familiar with the challenges when using historic tax credits (HTCs) to preserve America’s history, including issues such as climbing interest rates, rising insurance rates and increasing costs of construction and labor. In this week’s episode of the Novogradac Tax Credit Tuesday podcast, Michael Novogradac, CPA, and John DeJovine, CPA, discuss gap financing solutions for developers involved in historic preservation. First, the conversation covers the use of bridge loans, tax increment financing (TIF), payment in lieu of taxes (PILOT), property assessed clean energy (PACE) funds and other state, local and municipal sources of financing. Later, Novogradac and DeJovine discuss how the HTC pairs with other affordable rental housing and financing community development using such incentives as the low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC), new markets tax credit (NMTC), opportunity zones (OZ) equity, and renewable energy incentives such as the production tax credit (PTC) and investment tax credit (ITC).
