AGENCY PARTNERSHIPSWITH NONFEDERAL PARTIES MAINTAIN AND ENHANCE FEDERAL HISTORIC PROPERTIES Several agencies reported on their unique partnerships that leveraged the involvement of nonfederal parties to accomplish additional preservation work or produce cost savings for the federal government while enhancing information about historic properties. These partnerships also benefited local communities in advancing knowledge of and access to historic properties. The ACHP has seen an increase in agencies reporting the use of these types of partnerships over the past two reporting cycles, which is seen as an indication that these types of partnerships, assisting in addressing historic preservation goals and requirements, will continue in the future.
