FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
Agency Section 3 reports analyze their progress in meeting the goals of the EO since the last report three years ago. A universal sentiment running through all the submitted reports continues to be that federal agencies are proud of their stewardship of historic properties; they want to tell their stories and how they contribute to economic development and return value to the federal government and the communities where they are located. The many examples federal agencies provided in their reports run the gamut of historic property types, threats to them, and preservation opportunities grasped. How these agencies responded with their own historic preservation initiatives, partnerships, and creative solutions to better protect these resources, while providing the American public more and better chances to enjoy and appreciate them, deserves to be told in their own words. Agencies are clearly taking steps to improve their management and the condition of historic properties under their stewardship. While some agencies continue to face challenges incorporating historic preservation into their broader mission, as noted in this report, even these agencies continue to evidence a commitment to the stewardship of historic properties as they carry out their missions. The steps agencies take to identify, protect, and use their historic properties vary widely given the diverse range of historic property types and agency missions.
