Revitalizing and Growing Rural North Carolina

Smart reforms and support for individuals and businesses passed by House Republicans the last decade have turned our state’s economy into one of the national leaders.

In a state as large as ours, ensuring all communities in North Carolina have the opportunity to thrive and grow is important as people and businesses seek to move here in increasing numbers.

The recently passed House Bill 399 extends the vital Historic Tax Credits program through 2024, a program that was at risk of expiring due to Gov. Cooper’s refusal to negotiate with legislative leaders.

Rep. Steve Ross has been the leader for the Historic Tax Credit program since joining the legislature, helping revitalize downtowns in smaller towns throughout the state.

With the help of Rep. John Bell‘s tireless advocacy for the Historic Tax Credits program, downtown Goldsboro announced earlier this week the beginning of a project to restore the old Wayne National Building into apartments and commercial space.

House Republicans will continue to support rural communities throughout the state and work to ensure all North Carolinians have opportunities to thrive.
