Excepting holidays, on the first Friday of every month at DHR’s Richmond headquarters, tax credit staff can meet by appointment with applicants or their project representative from 9 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
Appointments are limited to 20 minutes so that staff may provide informal, non-binding guidance on specific historic rehabilitation treatment issues. These meetings are not intended to review an overall project. A formal, comprehensive review of a project occurs only after submission of the complete rehabilitation tax credit application to DHR.
Appointments for a first Friday meeting can only be scheduled after an applicant has submitted an application and had a DHR staff reviewer assigned to the project. Then the appropriate tax credit staff member will be available to discuss the specific treatment issues associated with a proposed project. We request, please, that no more than 2 or 3 project representatives attend a first Friday appointment.
For general questions about the application process or other requirements of the historic rehabilitation tax credit program, additional DHR tax credit staff are available by appointment during first Fridays.
Please contact Chris Novelli at (804) 482-6097 or Chris.Novelli@dhr.virginia.gov to schedule an appointment, which is made on a first-come, first-served basis.
