This summer, I was proud to participate in an internship, “Touching History: Preservation in Practice,” which introduces African American students to the field of historic preservation. This program was developed by the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP), the National Park Service (NPS), and the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Hands-On Preservation Experience (HOPE) Crew.
As required by the Government Performance and Results Act Modernization Act, the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) is developing a new Strategic Plan and is seeking input from stakeholders. The current Strategic Plan was developed in 2011 and amended in 2014.
The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation is now providing a new online/on-demand course, Early Coordination with Indian Tribes for Infrastructure Projects. The 90-minute course can be completed over a 30-day period.
The course is geared toward applicants for federal permits, licensing, or funding as well as federal permitting agencies and staff.
