Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act: A Summary
What Does Section 106 Say?
Every federal agency must take into account the effects of actions it proposes to carry out, assist, or license, on historic properties – that is, places included in or eligible for the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP)(1)
The agency must also give the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) a reasonable opportunity to comment on such actions, which are called undertakings.
Agencies carry out both responsibilities by following Section 106 regulations (36 CFR Part 800) issued by the ACHP, or by following alternatives negotiated with the ACHP and others, usually in the form of programmatic agreements (PAs).
