The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation recently announced that it will offer one of their most popular publications, Protecting Historic Properties: A Citizen’s Guide to Section 106 Review, in Spanish. By law, U.S. citizens have a voice when federal actions will affect properties that qualify for the National Register of Historic Places. This publication is designed to help citizens make their voices heard, and the new translation will help empower even more people with the knowledge and tools they need to protect historic properties in their areas.

The guide covers information including the following:

  • What Is Section 106 Review?
  • Understanding Section 106 Review
  • Determining Federal Involvement
  • Working with Federal Agencies
  • Influencing Project Outcomes
  • How the ACHP Can Help
  • When Agencies Don’t Follow the Rules
  • Following Through
  • Contact Information
