    This month, the Illinois General Assembly passed SB3527, expanding the availability of tax credits for historic redevelopments and establishing a new, statewide Illinois Historic Preservation Tax Credit. If signed into law, this could be a boon for developers and substantially alter the low-income housing landscape in Illinois.  Qualifying developments would be eligible for up to $3 million in state credits.
