COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio Department of Development awarded $17.5 million for restoration and preservation of eight historic Ohio buildings.

The awards are a part of the Ohio Historic Preservation Tax Credit Program (OHPTC) that provides a tax credit for private redevelopment of historic buildings. The eight announced awards are in addition to the $64.1 million already awarded through Round 29 of the program, and conclude the round.

Applications for Round 30 are accepted until March 31.

OHPTC is administered in partnership with the Ohio History Connection’s State Historic Preservation Office. The State Historic Preservation Office determines if a building qualifies as historic, and if rehabilitation plans comply with the U.S Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation.

The eight buildings include Fairfield Shoe Factory in central Ohio, McKinley School and Taylor Tudors in northeast Ohio, Lostro Building in southeast Ohio, and Commodore Apartments and Edward Wren Building in southwest Ohio. There were no additional northwest Ohio locations announced.
