Help from the Professional Associates Network

The Professional Associates Network (PAN) is a special membership group of Preservation NC for professionals who work, consult or invest in the field of historic preservation.

Help with Tax Credits

Federal and state tax credit programs offer a terrific incentive to taxpayers who rehabilitate historic buildings for their own homes or for income-producing properties.

Income tax incentives for the rehabilitation of historic structures are important tools for historic preservation and economic development in North Carolina.

Help with Easements

North Carolina is rich in natural and historic resources. Yet, as any preservationist knows, these special places are fragile and irreplaceable. How are we to protect and wisely conserve these resources and yet maintain our tradition of private ownership?

One appealing alternative for many property owners is the historic preservation easement. Easements have emerged as a very useful legal tool for protecting land and historic properties in North Carolina.

Help with Historic Windows

Repairing and maintaining, rather than replacing, historic wood windows means long-term savings for the property owner and long-term benefit for the environment.

Help with Building Codes & Accessibility

It can be difficult to abide by building codes without compromising the integrity of a historic structure. While safety and accessibility are extremely important issues for architecture today, they were not always considered in the construction of our historic buildings. Consequently, many historic structures must be updated to align with codes and regulations, which can be a daunting task.
