Certified Local Governments (CLG) Program

Under the CLG program, local governments that enforce appropriate historic preservation zoning ordinances are delegated certain SHPO responsibilities, receive federal matching funds for development of their local preservation program, and participate in the National Register of Historic Places nomination process. For detailed information, contact Melvena Heisch at 405/522-4484 or mheisch@okhistory.org.
