Program History

For the past 17 years the program has played a key role in community revitalization by supporting the rehabilitation and reuse of underutilized historic properties across the state. The program is credited with rehabilitating about 4,400 historic buildings and creating some 25,000 jobs since its implementation in 1996. The state’s investment of about $350 million has reached into all of Maryland’s 23 counties and the city of Baltimore. The Abell Foundation has estimated that about 73 jobs are created for each $1 million in tax credits and every dollar invested generates $8.53 in economic activity.
