Historic Preservation Development Council

Historic Preservation Development Council (HPDC) was formed in 2001 in partnership with the National Trust for Historic Preservation to facilitate strong transactions utilizing the historic rehabilitation tax credit. HPDC convenes active participants in certified historic rehabilitation transactions including developers, investors, lenders, government officials, consultants, attorneys and accounting professionals to discuss the most pressing legislative, regulatory, financial and transactional issues facing the industry.


Since its formation, HPDC has played a significant role in an array of legislative and regulatory efforts addressing certified historic rehabilitation. We have convened numerous meetings, many jointly with the National Trust for Historic Preservation, that led to the development of critical legislative and regulatory changes. We also have provided critical insight from the development community by helping design SHPO training for the National Park Service. A paper authored by HPDC led to the appointment of National Park System Advisory Board Committee on the Federal Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit Program. HPDC played a leadership role on the White Houses’ Preserve America Initiative, co-chairing the committee on Using Historic Properties as Economic Assets.  HPDC also founded the J. Timothy Anderson Awards for Excellence in Historic Preservation – the premier industry recognition honoring innovative historic preservation transactions.
