We are here to help! Preservation through partnership is the goal of the Certified Local Government (CLG) Program. This commitment is key to Washington States ability to preserve, protect, and increase awareness of  our unique cultural heritage found in the built environment.  As a CLG, communities have direct access to SHPO staff for assistance with their commission, building assessments, surveys and nominations, and general preservation assistance.  To help you with these various tasks, DAHP offers a variety of training, some specific for CLGs, and other general preservaton training.
