ACHP Policy Statement on Affordable Housing and Historic Preservation


Date Published: November 2006


This document contains the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation's (ACHP) Policy Statement on Affordable Housing and Historic Preservation. In issuing this policy statement, the ACHP, consistent with Section 202 of the NHPA, offers a flexible approach for affordable housing projects involving historic properties. Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (Section 106) requires Federal agencies to take into account the effects of their actions on historic properties and afford the ACHP a reasonable opportunity to comment. This policy provides a framework for meeting these requirements for affordable housing.
