How to Make the Most of the New U.S. Climate Tax Credits
The United States government just passed the Inflation Reduction Act, a sweeping piece of legislation that allocates nearly $400 billion dollars to fund clean energy and climate efforts. A big chunk of that amount is earmarked for tax credits for consumers. If you want to install solar panels, buy better windows, purchase a heat pump, or start driving an electric vehicle, there's a good chance you could get some money to offset the cost.

Four Reasons HUD's Section 108 Program Works with Historic Tax Credits
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD's) Section 108 Loan Guarantee program has offered flexible financing for local community and economic development activities. It's a potent financing tool that can go hand-in-hand with tax credit investments, such as the historic rehabilitation tax credit.
