Our Community and Economic Development programs offer a variety of resources to help communities prepare for economic development, as well as create workforce housing. Our team has a long history of working with local leaders to develop solutions and create opportunities for communities to succeed in growing jobs, both through organic, small-business growth and through the location of economic development prospects. Our goal is to work hand in hand with local leaders to help communities reach their growth and development goals, improve quality of life, and create sustainable, livable, thriving places to live across our state.

Every state has a SHPO, as established by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, often referred to simply as the NHPA. HPD has several key functions as part of the national historic preservation program.
