ACHP Issues Climate Change and Historic Preservation Policy Statement

Thursday, July 6, 2023 - 11:30AM

The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation in June adopted a Climate Change and Historic Preservation Policy Statement to acknowledge the connections between climate change and historic properties. The statement urges stakeholders to take steps to address the impacts in all stages of planning, including that for properties receiving the federal historic tax credit (HTC). The statement lists 15 priorities, with calls for the impact to historic properties to be an integral part of climate adaptation planning and implementation, a survey and identification of historic properties to focus on areas with the highest potential for climate impacts, permitting and environmental review of clean energy projects and climate-friendly transportation projects to be expedited while ensuring full consideration of potential impact to historic properties and more.

The Novogradac Historic Rehabilitation Handbook provides an overview of the HTC and the intricacies of the incentive.
