Standard treatments are a program alternative that allows the ACHP to establish standardized practices for dealing with certain categories of undertakings, effects, historic properties, or treatment options.  Standard treatments carry the ACHP’s explicit endorsements and can be applied by Section 106 users to assist them in complying with Section 106.  Federal agencies are not obligated to follow approved standard treatments but may elect to do so when they feel standard treatments will be of benefit in meeting their Section 106 compliance requirements.

This program alternative allows agencies to propose a program or category of agency undertaking that is exempt from further review under Section 106.  The ACHP may also propose an exemption on its own initiative.

Exempted categories must also be consistent with the purposes of the National Historic Preservation Act.

The ACHP can designate an agreement document as a prototype agreement that can be used for the same type of program or undertaking in more than one program or area. When a federal agency uses a prototype programmatic agreement, the agency may develop and execute the agreement with the appropriate SHPO/THPO without the need for the ACHP's participation in consultation or ACHP signature.

Programmatic Agreements are the most commonly used program alternative.  They allow federal agencies to govern the implementation of a particular agency program or the resolution of adverse effects from complex projects or multiple undertakings similar in nature through negotiation of an agreement between the agency and the ACHP.  In certain circumstances, the ACHP may also designate a specific agency agreement as a prototype agreement that can then be used for the same type of program or undertaking in more than one program or area.
