Title: Preservation Kentucky Mission

Preservation Kentucky Mission
  • Preservation Kentucky is dedicated to preserving
    Kentucky's historic and prehistoric places
    through education and advocacy.
  • Preservation Kentucky is the state partner of the
    National Trust for Historic Preservation and
    local nonprofit preservation organizations. We
    are also the nonprofit partner for the Kentucky
    Heritage Council/The State Historic Preservation
    Office (SHPO).

Preservation Education Advocacy
Preservation Kentucky History
  • Preservation Kentucky was formed in 1998 by the
    board of Commonwealth Preservation Advocates
    (CPA). As CPA was a lobbying group, it became
    clear that education and advocacy were not being
    adequately addressed. Preservation Kentucky was
    created to serve as the nonprofit voice for
    historic preservation with education and advocacy
    as the primary mission.
  • Preservation Kentucky is a non-profit, 501(c)3
    organization that relies on
  • membership revenue, grants, and other donations
    for operating funds. Members include individuals,
    businesses, community organizations, and
    government agencies.

Preservation Kentucky Advocacy
  • Our advocacy partners on the federal level

    Trust for Historic Preservation.
  • Preservation Kentucky informs members of
    important preservation-related legislation both
    nationally, statewide, and locally. During
    General Assembly Sessions, Preservation Kentucky
    monitors legislation and provides an action plan
    to constituents wishing to support preservation
    friendly legislation.

    the state now contributes approximately 768,000
    in general funds to the KHC budget---a 21
    decrease. At the same time, the annual rate of
    average inflation has increased by 2.3 percent.

  • Endangering the KHCs recognition as among the
    best SHPOs and Main Street programs in the

State Historic Preservation Tax Credit
  • The credit is an income tax incentive intended to
    assist Kentuckians with performing historic
    preservation work
  • 30 percent tax credit on certified rehabilitation
    work on owner-occupied historic properties
  • All other projects, such as income producing
    projects and/or local governments-owned
    properties can get up to 20 percent credit
  • A proven economic development engine that has
    created jobs and spurred private investment in
    the Commonwealth--16.71 in private funds for
    every public dollar spent

State Tax Credit Projects by Congressional
KY State Tax Credit Impact
  • When the amount of tax credits requested from
    across KY exceeds the 5 million capas it has
    every yearthe credit is proportioned among
  • Applicants cannot know the amount of their credit
    until after they have applied, giving the state
    credit limited utility in preservation project
  • Without the cap, tax credit users can be certain
    of what amount of credit they will receive
    either 20 or 30 percent

Impact for Historic Preservation?
  • The tax credit is the sole state financial
    incentive for private owners and local
    governments to preserve their historic
    properties. Limiting its utility limits the
    viability of preservation projects
  • A more understandable credit will translate into
    development of higher-paying skilled jobscraft
    persons and professionals
  • With more surety, new jobs will be created in
    addition to the nearly 3,500 jobsdirectly
  • A better credit more buildings will be
    preserved, which will increase tax revenues for
    local and state governments
