State and Federal Historic Resources Review and Compliance

March 21 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Any projects that require funding, licenses, or permits from federal agencies must be reviewed in compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966. Section 106 requires federal agencies to take into account the effects of their actions on historic properties. “Section 106 review,” follows a specific process, which is guided by federal regulations (36 CFR 800). Similarly, any projects that require funding, licenses, or permits from any state agency must be reviewed by MHC in compliance with Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 9, sections 26-27C. It provides for MHC review of state projects, including archaeological resources. This workshop will cover the different triggers for review, what is involved in the process, and how your local commission might be involved.
