Public Involvement in the Section 106 Process

Proud of your heritage? Value the places that reflect your community’s history? You should know about Section 106 review. By law, you have a voice when a project involving federal action, approval, or funding may affect properties that qualify for the National Register of Historic Places, the nation’s official list of historic properties.  A citizen's guide to Section 106 can be found here.

Each year, the federal government is involved with many projects that affect historic properties. The responsibility for public notification rests solely with the responsible federal agency.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact this office and we can assist you to find the correct contact for a specific undertaking.
