SHPO and COVID-19
With the implementation of Executive Order 2020-21, the SHPO facility is closed and staff will be working remotely, effective March 24.
SHPO staff are most accessible by email. Some program areas can accept electronically-submitted materials. Effective April 27, Section 106 applications can now be accepted electronically. Physical mail can be accessed by our staff once each week and we are making every effort to ensure continued functioning of our programs. General inquiries can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. For the latest information regarding SHPO research requests, send an email to MSF-SHPOResearch@michigan.gov. We appreciate your understanding.
Governor's Awards for Historic Preservation
Each year the SHPO and the SHPO Review Board identify worthy recipients to receive the Governor’s Awards for Historic Preservation. The awards recognize homeowners who rehabilitate their homes; developers who transform underutilized historic structures; and academic institutions, archaeologists, nonprofits and local governments—among others—who strive to preserve Michigan’s important historic and cultural resources.
