Irvin Henderson Main Street Revitalization Fund Supports Three New Projects

Written By: NTCIC

NTCIC is happy to announce the successful financing of three historic projects through the Irvin Henderson Main Street Revitalization Fund. This fund supports main street revitalization efforts by providing financing through the New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) and Historic Tax Credit (HTC) to community development initiatives that would otherwise not be able to utilize these incentives.

Once complete, these historic and long-vacant buildings will become new focal points for their neighborhoods and both welcoming and engaging places for their communities.

The Crescent Corset Company factory in Cortland, New York, was one of the leading employers for women in the region. This multi-phase project transformed the long vacant building into a new headquarters for a nonprofit mental health counseling organization specializing in mental health support and drug dependency counseling, as well as the city's LGBTQ+ community center. | Crescent Commons
