This year, the
Maine Legislature significantly expanded the credit to provide a Maine state
credit equal to 25 percent of qualified rehabilitation expenditures. Projects
that involve a substantial affordable housing component receive a credit at a 30
percent rate. The Federal credit adds an additional 20 percent of qualified
rehabilitation expenditures. The combined credits provide a powerful financial
resource for the preservation of Maine’s historic buildings and for downtown
Our panel (Amy Cole Ives, founder of Sutherland Conservation &
Consulting in Hallowell, and John Kaminski and Gary
Vogel, both attorneys at Drummond Woodsum & MacMahon in Portland) will
discuss the legislative process to enact the expanded credit, the requirements
and potential uses of the credit as a tool for historic preservation and
development, the linkage of the increased credit to affordable housing and the
impact that the credit is expected to have on historic preservation in Maine.
