The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) is an independent agency of the United States government that promotes the preservation, enhancement, and productive use of the nation's historic resources, and advises the President and Congress on national historic preservation policy.
The goal of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 (NHPA), which established ACHP in 1966, is to have Federal agencies act as responsible stewards of the nation's resources when their actions affect historic properties. ACHP is the only entity with the legal responsibility to encourage Federal agencies to factor historic preservation into Federal project requirements.
As directed by the National Historic Preservation Act, ACHP serves as the primary federal policy advisor to the President and Congress; recommends administrative and legislative improvements for protecting the nation's heritage; advocates full consideration of historic values in federal decisionmaking; and reviews Federal programs and policies to promote effectiveness, coordination, and consistency with national preservation policies.
== Mission ==
On May 31, 2002 the membership of the ACHP adopted a mission statement.
"The mission of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation is to promote the preservation, enhancement, and productive use of our Nation's historic resources, and advise the President and Congress on national historic preservation policy."〔(About ACHP: General Information )," ''Advisory Council for Historic Preservation'', Official site. Retrieved 21 March 2007.〕
Statutorily, the ACHP has a significant role under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. Under that section, Federal agencies have to take into account the effects of their undertakings on properties listed, or eligible for listing, on the National Register of Historic Places, and give the ACHP a reasonable opportunity to comment.
The ACHP has issued regulations setting forth how agencies comply with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. They are found at 36 C.F.R. part 800 (2004).
