Yes, if your project is being funded by a grant awarded by our office, you are using or intend to use rehabilitation tax credits, or you need a permit from another federal or state agency.

If you are using private funds, you DO NOT need approval from the DHPA. Even if it is listed in the National Register, you DO NOT need our approval.

Even if you do not need state approval, you do need to check at your city level incase there are local historic districts/commissions that require approval before alterations can be made to historic houses.
