Virginia Department of Historic Resources

DHR’s Draft Work Plan for Federal Fiscal Year 2020 (Oct. 2019 — Sept. 2020) Posted for Public Comment:

DHR’s programs support both public and private efforts to make the most of irreplaceable historic resources that can and should benefit Virginia communities for generations to come.  The Department is guided by issues, challenges, and goals adopted as part of its Comprehensive Plan (2016-2021). DHR revises its Work Plan each year to set annual priorities based on preservation needs and opportunities and outlines the specific ways in which DHR will address its goals and objectives cited in the statewide Comprehensive Plan.

DHR’s revised 2019-2020 Work Plan continues to

  • improve the quality of and access to information about historic resources and ways to preserve and use them effectively;
  • promote economic development;
  • help public and private entities deal with the effects of climate change; and
  • demonstrate an increased commitment to serving all of Virginia’s varied geographic areas and communities.

The Work Plan will be posted for a 30-day public comment period ending Saturday, September 21, 2019. Please contact DHR Deputy Director Stephanie Williams (804-482-6082) if you would like to submit comments.
