The Wisconsin Historic Tax Credits: What’s Next‘ Panel discussion and workshop about the future of the Historic Tax Credit program in Wisconsin.
Join us for a mid-day panel discussion focused on the Wisconsin Historic Tax Credit program. Since the program’s elevation to 20% of Qualified Restoration Expenses (QRE’s) in 2014, Wisconsin has become a national leader in the economic, social, and job creation benefits of reusing existing historic buildings. These benefits have been felt throughout the state. Showing case study examples that maximize the economic benefits of state historic credits, the panel will examine the initial intentions of the program, how it has grown recently, and what to expect as we move forward.
Please RSVP to tibbetts@uwm.edu if you plan on attending!

This symposium is sponsored with the Historic Preservation Institute in the School of Architecture at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (HPI UWM SARUP), CG Schmidt, and the Wisconsin Trust for Historic Preservation.

The Historic Preservation Institute Lecture Series focuses on the challenges of retaining key historic buildings and districts in Milwaukee. This series is being offered as a educational tool for students and professionals. The HPI functions as a laboratory for studies into building documentation, historic research, re-use design proposals, and the economics of landmark retention. As with the fall HPI lectures for the past five years, the spring workshop examines the latest challenges facing design, construction and development teams.
