The thousands of historic houses, buildings, structures, and archaeological sites in our state represent a tangible link to Arizona's past. The SHPO conducts an ongoing historic/prehistoric resource survey program to identify, evaluate, and plan for the effective and responsible management of these significant properties. The SHPO has also developed a comprehensive State Plan for historic and prehistoric resources in Arizona. State and federal agencies, cities and towns, nonprofit organizations, and individuals participate in and contribute to this survey and planning effort.
Certified Local Governments (CLGs) qualify for matching financial assistance through the SHPO for survey and planning projects, providing funds for historic resource identification and National Register nomination projects throughout the state.
