    NYS Historic Homeownership Rehabilitation Tax Credit Expansion Effort

    In January of 2018, The PCA sent the below linked letter to Assembly members Crystal Peoples-Stokes and Sean Ryan to express our support for expanded access to the NYS Historic Homeownership Rehabilitation Tax Credit Program to all of Parkside. It is currently restricted by census tracts which exclude much of Parkside.

    To view the letter submitted by the PCA, please click HERE.

    Parkside is already designated as a Historic District in the National Register, but all of the benefits of this designation have not yet been extended. The biggest benefit would be to homeowners who would have access to the New York State Historic Homeownership Rehabilitation Tax Credit. Work on the residential structures may qualify for tax credits, which would cover 20% of qualified rehabilitation costs, up to $50,000 in tax credits. 

    If you would like to sign on to support this effort, please click HERE.


     Our Annual Appeal

    Dear Neighbors and Friends,

    We are proud of what we have accomplished and know there is more to do in 2018!

    Without faithful Parkside residents like you, the work we do would not be possible. For those of you who have generously completed community service, come out in support of our events, and financially contributed, we are so grateful.

    If you've enjoyed our many community events and campaigns, sent your children to our Summer Arts Camp, or if you simply appreciate being a part of a community that cares for its neighbors, please consider making a tax-deductible, year-end gift to the PCA's Annual Appeal.

    The work we do this year, and every year for the past 55 years, would not have been possible without the support and generosity of people like you, and for that, we thank you.
