Oklahoma Historic Preservation Office Receiving Project Suggestions Online

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma Historical Society’s State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO), under the National Historic Preservation Act, administers the federal historic preservation program in Oklahoma. The purpose of the program is to encourage preservation of the state’s archaeological and historic resources for everyone’s benefit.  

The Statewide Preservation Plan, prepared by the SHPO and currently in draft form for years 2020–2024, sets forth the statewide preservation community’s goals and objectives. The SHPO’s priorities for addressing the State Plan’s goals are a continuation of the archaeological and historic/architectural resources survey program, with special emphasis on resources associated with underrepresented peoples and extension of survey coverage to previously unstudied areas; preparation of National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) nominations; and continuation of public outreach and technical assistance programs.

 The SHPO welcomes project ideas and recommended priorities from the public for its fiscal year 2020 activities to help strengthen preservation efforts in Oklahoma. Starting September 15, 2019, the Project Suggestion Form will be available online through the SHPO website, or in hard copy by request. The form can be submitted electronically at any point during the year, but will only be considered for the next funding cycle that is available. At this time, you may submit suggestions for the fiscal year 2020 funding cycle. To view the Project Suggestion Form, please visit the SHPO website at www.okhistory.org/shpo/projectsuggestion. Contact Lynda Ozan at 405-522-4484 or lozan@okhistory.org with questions or to receive a hard copy of the form.
