Top Initiatives

By creating partnerships with local schools and offering unique opportunities to students, the ACHP hopes to educate young people on preservation and encourage them to enjoy history in their own backyards.
The ACHP promotes sustainable and resilient communities where historic properties are used as assets for promoting energy efficiency and community livability, and are protected from climate impacts.
The ACHP supports federal policies and programs that promote use of historic properties to revitalize local communities.
The changing demographics of America pose opportunities as well as challenges for the national historic preservation program.
2016 marked 50 years since the National Historic Preservation Act was signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson. Preservation 50 is the celebration of American culture and heritage through preservation.
In addition to the positions that may be open at the ACHP, there are many other ways to break into the field of historic preservation.
