ACHP will present a FREE series of LIVE Section 106 webinars in January 2021. Each one-hour webinar includes opportunities for participants to interact with the content, instructors, and others in the Zoomgov meeting (a FedRamp compliant application). Each webinar assumes that participants have some knowledge of the Section 106 review process, implementing regulations, and terms of art. If you participated in the ACHP's May 2020 Webinar Series or have completed our Section 106 Essentials classroom course, you are ready for the Winter 2021 Webinar Series:
The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation will have its fall business meeting on December 10. Due to the current public health emergency, the members will convene via Zoom. The limited agenda includes the following items:
1. Leveraging Federal Historic Buildings Working Group
2. Section 3 Report to the President 2021
Preservation Perspectives podcast - Interview with C.H. Nash Museum at Chucalissa Graduate Assistant, Cristina Rose

The U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System (VAGLAHS) campus in Brentwood, California, is providing a unique housing solution for homeless veterans during the coronavirus pandemic, a project that benefited from the ACHP’s blanket extension for use of expedited Section 106 reviews related to the emergency.
Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act requires federal agencies that carry out, license, or assist projects that may affect historic properties to take into account such effects and provide the ACHP a reasonable opportunity to comment.
