NPS to Host Free Webinars on Guidance Concerning Historic Building Exteriors
The National Park Service (NPS) announced that it will host free webinars on 2023 guidance it issued concerning the use of substitute materials on historic buildings that involve the historic tax credit (HTC). Webinars take place Feb. 6 and Feb. 22. Preservation Brief 16: The Use of Substitute Materials on Historic Building Exteriors was issued in October 2023, providing considerations for the appropriate use of substitute materials, case studies and more. The guidance was to make the requirements more consistent with other NPS guidance.
The Novogradac Historic Rehabilitation Handbook provides an overview of the HTC and the intricacies of the incentive.
