The Secretary’s Standards & Guidelines

December 4, 2013, 1:30 am4:30 pm

This half-day workshop is dedicated to a thorough discussion of the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards and Guidelines for Rehabilitation. Generally referred to as The Standards, these common sense principles are widely used in the historic preservation field. Whether you are involved in a rehabilitation project for the 20% federal and 20% state tax credits, planning a rehabilitation project funded with federal assistance, serving on a local historic preservation commission, or just wanting to know the best approach to rehabilitating your historic private home, you will find this session invaluable. It is designed as a stand-alone workshop and as a companion to Federal and State Tax Incentives for Rehabilitation.

The Oklahoma State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) is pleased to announce the schedule for its Fall 2013 workshop series. Each workshop is devoted to one of the SHPO’s federal preservation programs and is designed for preservation professionals, government agency representatives, and concerned citizens. The sessions will be held Wednesday, December 4 through Friday, December 6.
