NPS Issues Updated Guidance on Uses of Substitute Materials on HTC Building Exteriors

Thursday, October 5, 2023 - 3:00PM

The National Park Service (NPS) today issued updated guidance on the use of substitute materials in rehabilitating buildings while using the federal historic tax credit (HTC). The guidance, Preservation Brief 16: The Use of Substitute Materials on Historic Building Exteriors, is revised to include when substitute materials may be appropriate and provide a decision-making path. The guidance includes an expanded and updated list of building features and substitute materials that may be used as replacement materials. The NPS said webinars on the new guidance will be scheduled in the coming weeks.

The role of the NPS will be discussed at the Novogradac 2023 Historic Tax Credit Conference, Oct. 12-13 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
