The National Park Service has released a report on the 35th anniversary of the first certified rehabilitation project, certified in 1977, under the historic tax credit program. The report features statistics, case studies, and other information on the program over the last 35 years.

The report discusses the successes of the program, both in terms of the historic buildings that have been rehabilitated throughout the nation, in communities both large and small, and how the program has contributed to community revitalization, job creation and other economic benefits, the reuse of such vacant or underutilized building types as manufacturing buildings and schools, energy conservation and sustainability, innovative reuse projects, disaster relief, and revitalizing Main Street.

The report is available on the TPS website at:
