The National Alliance of Preservation Commissions is the only national nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting local historic preservation commissions and the historic resources they help protect.
The National Alliance of Preservation Commissions was founded in 1983 in response to amendments to the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966. These amendments provided financial assistance to local governments that met requirements of the Certified Local Government program, including the establishment of a local preservation ordinance and commission.
NAPC was formed to provide a forum for commissions to discuss mutual problems and to serve as a national voice representing the particular needs of commissions.
