WASHINGTON, D.C. – Due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, in-person internships have been canceled around the nation this summer. Despite this reality, the partners in the Preservation in Practice program remain committed to providing historic preservation training to architecture students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) next year.
On April 3, 2020, the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation issued a blanket extension regarding the review under 36 CFR 800.12 of undertakings responding to COVID-19 emergency and disaster declarations. That initial extension was set to expire on May 29, 2020. Considering the likelihood of such declarations remaining in place into the foreseeable near future, and the ongoing need for federal agency responses to them, that extension is now set to expire on July 31, 2020.
