National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers


The National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers (NCSHPO) is the professional association of the State government officials who carry out the national historic preservation program as delegates of the Secretary of the Interior pursuant to the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966. The NCSHPO maintains a website that contains resources associated with professional development and current issues as well as contact information for State Historic Preservation Officers. The NCSHPO acts as a communications vehicle among the SHPOs and their staffs and represents the SHPOs with federal agencies and national preservation organizations. Questions about historic preservation in individual states (i.e. a federal project, listing in the National Register of Historic Places, tax incentives) should be directed to the respective state.
