Contact a State Historic Preservation Office

State Historic Preservation Offices play a critical role in the tax incentives program. They are the first point of contact for property owners. They also:

  • Provide application forms, regulations, information on appropriate treatments, and technical assistance.
  • Maintain records of buildings and districts listed in the National Register of Historic Places, as well as state and local certified historic districts.
  • Assist anyone wishing to list a building or a district in the National Register of Historic Places.
  • Advise applicants on rehabilitation projects and make site visits.
  • Make certification recommendations to the NPS.

Each SHPO has their own process for the submission of electronic applications to their office. Use the links below to locate a SHPO's information on their electronic submission process.
