Section 3 Report Preparation Guidance Questions Available
June 2-The ACHP today issued updated guidance to federal agencies on how to report on their progress in identifying, protecting, and using historic properties in their ownership or control, consistent with the requirements of Section 3 of Executive Order 13287, “Preserve America” (EO).

The Section 3 advisory guidelines are available here. While we strongly encourage the use of these guidelines, they are not mandatory, and a federal agency with real property management responsibilities can, at its discretion, independently determine how it will report on the progress of its efforts to identify, protect, and use its historic properties.

In order to assist agencies, the ACHP is hosting an open house June 28 during which ACHP staff will be available to discuss the reporting requirements, answer questions about the reporting process, and provide examples of previous agency Section 3 reports for viewing. For more information on that or questions about the report contact
