How It Works

OTR A.D.O.P.T. transfers vacant, historic buildings to individuals who have the ability and commitment to bring them back to life. Applications to adopt a building should meet the following criteria:

  • Financial feasibility and proof of funds*
  • Professional assessment of project costs
  • Commitment to complete project in a limited timeframe
  • Community Benefit

*Federal and State historic tax credits are an excellent source of subsidy for historic rehabilitation projects. See our Historic Tax Credits brochure for more information.
