The ACHP's Fall Section 106 Webinar Series

"An Overview of Program Alternatives"
Level: Advanced


The Section 106 regulations offer five program alternatives to tailor the review process to specific federal agency needs. Charlene Dwin Vaughn, Assistant Director in the Office of Federal Agency Programs, and Associate General Counsel Javier Marqués will familiarize participants with the program alternatives. Also, learn how to plan the consultation effort needed to develop a program alternative. This advanced-level program will guide Section 106 users, especially federal agency staff, toward opportunities for greater efficiency in their compliance process.

“Defining the Area of Potential Effect”
Level: Beginner 


The Area of Potential Effects (APE) is the foundation of a federal agency’s efforts to identify historic properties in a Section 106 review. Learn how APEs vary based on the nature of an undertaking, practice defining a preliminary APE in project scenarios, and explore best practices for documenting APEs with ACHP’s NRC Liaison/Program Analyst Sarah Stokely.

“Preservation Compliance and Disposal”
Level: Intermediate


When a federal agency determines that their property is no longer needed for discharge of their responsibilities, such property may be excessed to another federal agency or disposed out of federal ownership. Both paths lead to specific historic preservation compliance responsibilities under Sections 110 and/or 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA). The ACHP’s GSA Liaison, Kirsten Kulis, and Program Analyst Katharine Kerr will guide participants through the different means of disposal and help them develop a working knowledge of what historic preservation responsibilities apply. Learn how to avoid adverse effects and address other historic property management challenges.
