The Historic Homeowners Revitalization Act of 2009 is the ultimate job creation, sustainable, green and smart development program. House Bill HR 3670 is sponsored by Representative Russ Carnahan (D-MO) and Representative Michael Turner (R-OH), co-chairs of the Historic Preservation Caucus, and co-sponsored by a growing list of representatives (see sponsor list at left).
The Federal Historic Tax Credit Coalition is educating citizens and groups across the country of the great number of policy benefits: jobs, sustainability, and green and smart development. Missouri's similar program has been quite effective, touted by the Wall Street Journal as a "national model." According to the Missouri Department of Economic Development, four thousand jobs were created in 2007 alone. Other outcomes: five thousand new residents have moved to Downtown St. Louis in the past ten years, the first population increase in the city in 50 years has been recorded, and over $4 billion of investment has been made in the state. All of these improvements are direct results from the Missouri State Historic Tax Credit program.
Watch the video with examples of how and where the credit has been used across our state, produced by the Missouri Coalition for Historic Preservation and Economic Development and Missouri preservation organizations.
