WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) today issued a blanket extension through May 29, 2020, for federal agency use of emergency Section 106 procedures regarding undertakings that respond to emergency and disaster declarations on the outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID -19). 

The extension applies to projects that respond to COVID-19 under the national emergency declared by President Trump on March 13, 2020, and other COVID-19 emergencies or disaster declarations that have already been issued by the President, a tribal government, or the governor of a state, or may be issued by any of them while the extension is in place.


WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation granted the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) its request to extend the time period when it can use the emergency provisions of Section 106 for the review of projects that are a direct response to emergency and disaster declarations on the outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Unless extended, such emergency provisions are applicable only within 30 days of an emergency or disaster declaration. This extension adds six weeks to that period.


The ACHP knows history learning can happen anywhere. During this new reality of schooling from home, the ACHP wants to offer history resources that will surely educate and entertain as students and parents continue to work from home.

Here are some suggested lesson plans and interesting content to keep kids engaged with history and historic preservation. Please feel free to add to the conversation with your own history, civics, and social studies learning ideas on our Facebook pages: and
