Almost every successful preservation effort involves partnerships, and it is common for public agencies and private organizations or individuals to join forces in these efforts. It is important to understand the programs and responsibilities of the local, state, federal, and tribal government agencies and of the many nonprofit organizations that play roles in the preservation of our national, state, and local heritage. Link to websites for many of these entities from this page.
