HP Group is a 100% female-owned and operated business founded in 2014 by Heather Rudge. Ms. Rudge brings over 25 years of historic preservation expertise to HP Group with experience ranging from creating and running “bricks and mortar” technical assistance and rehabilitation funding programs to focusing the last 13 years on the successful delivery of federal and state historic tax credits to projects varying in size from single buildings to entire building complexes. Ms. Rudge has long-standing working relationships with the Ohio Historic Preservation Office, the Ohio Development Services Agency, and the National Park Service, the three agencies charged with reviewing and approving historic tax credit applications.

For clients desiring to use historic tax credits, HP Group is an expert at establishing eligibility for buildings not currently listed in the National Register of Historic Places. With every historic tax credit project, HP Group’s goal is to effectively and creatively manage and balance the client’s desired rehabilitation project within the established historic tax credit guidelines to ensure project certification. Ms. Rudge’s successful track record on federal Part 2 approvals, state tax credit allocations, and her 100% Part 3 Certification record sets the benchmark for client satisfaction. HP Group strives to achieve the highest quality of client service which includes responsiveness, communication, effective cost management, professional guidance throughout the project, adherence to schedule, and timely project closeout. The success of HP Group is reflected in every client’s successful project.
