If your home is a contributing structure in a designated Historic Preservation Overlay Zone (HPOZ) or a historic cultural monument, The City of Los Angeles can help you rehabilitate, restore, and maintain your building with a financial incentive.  (See a list of all HPOZ zones below). Thanks to The Mills Act Historical Property Contract Program, historical building homeowners are able to receive a potential property tax reduction, allowing them to put that extra money towards the renovations and repairs that the property needs. The Mills Act has been assisting qualified historic property owners with tax relief since 1996, benefiting nearly 900 properties in the City of Los Angeles.

Owners of income-producing properties that are listed in or eligible for the National Register of Historic Places may take advantage of a 20% Federal tax credit.  The credit is 20% of the amount spent on qualifying historic rehab expenditures.

You can learn more about these incentive and others along with additional historic resources at planning.lacity.org


At Fusion, we understand that your historic home or building captures a timeless moment in history.  When it comes to replacing exterior and interior elements, the experts at Fusion are extremely knowledgeable and are ready to help you every step of the way. Preserve your historic property’s original charm while reaping the rewards that The Mills Act and other incentives offer to qualified owners.
