The Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development has awarded 15 projects in 10 counties in Pennsylvania the first $3,000,000 of Pennsylvania Historic Preservation Tax Credits. The projects receiving awards include buildings ranging from a church, schools, apartment complexes to a shore factory.  The largest award was $369,015 and the smallest $13,895.  The Pennsylvania Historic Preservation Tax Credit may be bifurcated from the Federal Historic Tax Credit and may be sold by an assignment of a certificate which enable developers to have separate investors for the state and the federal historic tax credits.
