Historic Designation and Job Creation in Enfield, NC

Enfield Economic Development & Revitalization Commission (EEDRC)
Program Area:
Open Grants Program
County of Applicant:

The purpose of this grant is to provide funding to assist the Enfield Economic Development and Revitalization Commission with its initiative to secure a historic designation for the Town of Enfield, as recommended in the Economic Master Plan completed by UNC-Chapel Hill, which was funded by Golden LEAF in 2010. With the historic designation, businesses that locate downtown would be able to receive a historic tax credit, making locating there more attractive. The location of new businesses in downtown is expected to increase investment in privately owned property, create at least 50 new full-time jobs, and also increase average annual wages. Golden LEAF funds will be used to pay the balance of the fee for the NC Preservation writer to complete the application for the historic designation.
