A key responsibility of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) is to administer the requirements of Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), a review process that ensures historic properties are considered during the development of any federal project. The ACHP’s Office of Federal Agency Programs (OFAP) coordinates this responsibility.
Las reglamentaciones dictadas por el ACHP describen el proceso de revisión según la Sección 106 y especifican las acciones que las agencias federales deben tomar para cumplir con sus obligaciones legales.
Preservationists marked the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) in 2016 and took the opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of the federal preservation program that was created by the NHPA. In conjunction with a public outreach effort, the ACHP analyzed the federal preservation program established by the NHPA and developed recommendations for actions that would improve the program to address current and future needs.
Preservation in Practice is a program the ACHP spearheaded with the National Park Service and the National Trust for Historic Preservation introducing architecture students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities to historic preservation work.
The ACHP's Leveraging Federal Historic Buildings Working Group has produced its Final Report with findings and recommendations for the public and private sector on how to use historic federal buildings and spark economic growth.
