Update on TPS Operations

Update as of March 29, 2022

The Technical Preservation Services (TPS) office continues to be open and operating normally. Following an extended period of operating largely remotely in response to Covid-19, TPS staff are now generally working on a hybrid basis with both in-office and telework days.

Continuing an operational change begun while working remotely, TPS will continue to send a "notice of decision" to the applicant electronically as application decisions are issued. A copy of the official signed decision will be mailed to the applicant as soon as possible thereafter, but there may be up to a 1-to-2-week delay from the time the electronic notice is received.

A few State Historic Preservation Offices (SHPOs) are continuing to operate on an electronic-submission basis: Connecticut, District of Columbia, Illinois, Minnesota, Utah, Washington. Please contact the SHPO office if you have questions concerning their specific operations before submitting any tax incentive applications.

We will keep you apprised of any new developments or changes in our operations should Federal workplace safety guidance change. Please subscribe to our email contact list here to receive the latest information.
