As of August 15, 2023, Historic Preservation Certification Application submission and review are fully electronic. Hard copy applications are no longer accepted. All applications submitted to SHPOs and materials submitted to the NPS in response to requests for additional information must be submitted electronically.
Applicants must sign the application cover sheet electronically. Three types of electronic signatures (e-signatures) are accepted:
Applicants are not required to resubmit applications electronically if the application was submitted to the SHPO or the NPS prior to August 15, and review of the application is still in process. For example, if an application was submitted prior to August 15 and later put on hold for more information, and the applicant submits the additional information now, the additional information must be in the electronic format. The original application and submittals will remain hard copy, but any material submitted after August 15 must be in electronic format.
