This course is designed to answer questions applicants for federal funding, permits, licenses, or other assistance may have about the review process required by Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. The roles of federal agencies and applicants are highlighted in terms of how they contrast and complement each other to ensure historic properties receive consideration in project planning. This course introduces users to Section 106, explains how federal agencies review proposed projects, and discusses the roles that agency officials, State and Tribal Historic Preservation Officers, and other parties play. It also suggests ways applicants can facilitate the review process by planning for and collaborating on ways to avoid adverse effects.
