By law, members of the public have a voice when federal actions may affect properties that qualify for the National Register of Historic Places, the nation's official list of historic properties. Protecting Historic Properties: A Citizen's Guide to Section 106 Review is designed to help citizens make their voices heard.
Las reglamentaciones dictadas por el ACHP describen el proceso de revisión según la Sección 106 y especifican las acciones que las agencias federales deben tomar para cumplir con sus obligaciones legales.
A key responsibility of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) is to administer the requirements of Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), a review process that ensures historic properties are considered during the development of any federal project. The ACHP’s Office of Federal Agency Programs (OFAP) coordinates this responsibility.
Preservationists marked the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) in 2016 and took the opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of the federal preservation program that was created by the NHPA. In conjunction with a public outreach effort, the ACHP analyzed the federal preservation program established by the NHPA and developed recommendations for actions that would improve the program to address current and future needs.
