State Historic Preservation Office Webinars to Focus on Interior Secretary’s Standards and Guidelines for Rehabilitation

OKLAHOMA CITY — The State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) will hold two free webinars in December to focus on the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards and Guidelines for Rehabilitation.

Generally known as The Standards and The Guidelines, these common-sense principles are widely used in the historic preservation field.

The webinar focusing on The Standards will take place on Thursday, December 15, at 10 a.m. The webinar focusing on The Guidelines will take place on Friday, December 16, at 10 a.m.

The sessions will be beneficial to anyone pursuing the 20% federal and 20% state tax credits for a certified rehabilitation, planning a rehabilitation project funded with federal assistance, serving on a local historic preservation commission or rehabilitating a historic private home. It is designed as a stand-alone workshop and as a companion to Federal and State Tax Incentives for Rehabilitating Historic Buildings.

Registration for both workshops is required.
