DCA seeks comments about state historic tax credit program

Meeting scheduled for Sept. 26 at State Capitol Building

DES MOINES – The Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs has scheduled a meeting for 1-3 p.m. Sept. 26, 2011, at the State Capitol Building, Room 116, in Des Moines for the public to offer input and comments about the State Historic Preservation and Culture & Entertainment District Tax Credit program.
