The Federal Preservation Institute is pleased to offer the following publications for use by all interested parties.

Responding to requests by Federal Preservation Officers (FPOs), the Federal Preservation Institute has developed a series of folders that describe important aspects of every federal agency's historic preservation responsibilities.
Historic Preservation: A Responsibility of Every Federal Agency. This folder provides a quick, easy to read introduction to federal historic preservation. Complete with examples of federal stewardship, consultation, rehabilitation, and protection, the folder also summarizes milestones in federal historic preservation law.
Consultation with Native Americans: A Historic Preservation Responsibility. This folder describes how federal agencies can develop meaningful "government-to-government" relationships with Indian Tribes. It outlines best practices and a seven step process for effective consultation.
FPI also periodically sponsors conferences that address national historic preservation issues.
Facts for Feds provide brief information on historic preservation topics of interest to Federal Presevation Officers and their clients.
Measuring the Economic Impact of Federal Historic Properties: An Introduction to the Impact of Federal Stewardship of Historic Properties on Economic Vitality. Executive Order 13287, Preserve America, signed in the spring of 2003, emphasizes using Federal historic properties to enhance economic vitality of communities. Yet, no specific guidance was provided to Federal agencies on how to measure the impact of their stewardship decisions on economic growth. This paper was prepared as a starting point for Federal preservation officers and historic preservation staff at Federal agencies to understand how the historic properties managed by the Federal government can contribute to local economies.
FPI also supports the diffusion of historic preservation information by hosting publications not generally available elsewhere that are of interest to the federal historic preservation community. Check out the FPI Bookshelf.
