Program Analyst Jaime Loichinger will coach participants through a variety of response and recovery scenarios with help from Meghan Hesse, FEMA’s ACHP detailee.

Section 106 is a public process, but there are circumstances when information about historic properties should be kept confidential. Program Analyst Kelly Fanizzo will outline the types of information that may be protected from release (including in response to FOIA requests) by Section 304 of the National Historic Preservation Act. Consider how Section 304 may apply to different consultation scenarios and learn how to address issues regarding the scope and limits of Section 304 with Indian tribes, Native Hawaiian organizations, and other parties concerned about the confidentiality of sensitive information.
