Section 106 Webinar Series

The ACHP's 2018 Section 106 Webinar Series

Please join us for one-hour webinars on four topics:

“Defining the Area of Potential Effects”
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 Training Specialist Katry Harris.

“Managing Confidential Information and Section 304”
Level: Intermediate


Section 106 is a public process, but there are circumstances when information about historic properties should be kept confidential. Kelly Fanizzo, Associate General Counsel, and Tom McCulloch, Senior Archaeologist and Assistant Director of the Office of Federal Agency Programs, 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 in this intermediate level webinar. 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.

“Archaeological Sites and Section 106: A Discussion on Identification and Evaluation”
Level: Beginner


Participants in Section 106 reviews often find themselves discussing archaeological site identification and evaluation. But what if the terms and methods are not familiar? Program Analyst John Eddins, an archaeologist, demystifies some factors that influence delineation of the Area of Potential Effects for archaeological sites and helps participants identify issues to consider in developing an identification plan and considering the multiple levels of significance that different stakeholders may ascribe to such properties. Some familiarity with the Section 106 regulations is recommended.

“Planning for Successful Section 106 Agreements”
Level: Intermediate


When a federal agency finds that an undertaking may adversely affect a historic property, it must consider measures to avoid, minimize, and mitigate such adverse effects, document the resolution of the Section 106 consultation in a formal, legal agreement, and implement the measures in the agreement. In this webinar, Associate General Counsel Kelly Fanizzo and Program Analyst Chris Wilson will practice applying the tools for agreement writing and reviewing provided in the ACHP's Guidance on Agreement Documents and guide participants in performing a "reality check" for agreement consultation. Cultural resources professionals and project/program managers with a strong understanding in the requirements of Section 106 consultation will benefit from this fresh look at effective strategies to execute implementable agreements in a timely manner.
