The “Fantastic Four” Funding Approaches for Preservation

Presenters:  Jim McPherson, Arizona Preservation Foundation; Marc Schultz, Snell & Wilmer; Demion Clinco, Tucson Historic Preservation Foundation; Lani Lott, Arizona Heritage Alliance; Bob Cothern and Ann Hutchinson, Black Canyon Heritage Park

Learn about four different funding approaches for supporting historic preservation projects. This half day workshop takes a deep-drive into the new Opportunity Zones and the realities around using this approach for a project. Discuss the value of always looking at leveraging federal tax credits as an option for supporting a project as well as update on legislative initiatives to support preservation. Members of the Arizona Heritage Alliance will provide an update on the Arizona Heritage Fund. The Black Canyon Heritage Park, also the home to the Black Canyon City’s Historical Society,  Museum and Visitor Center, will share their story and the type of funding that they have used in the past as well as the funding approaches for current operations of the Park.
