The Section 106 Essentials is a two-day course designed for those who are new to federal historic preservation compliance or those who want a refresher on the Section 106 regulations and review process. This course explains the requirements of Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, which applies any time a federal, federally assisted, or federally approved activity might affect a property listed in or eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.
This course features a real-life case study illustrating each step in the ACHP's regulations, Protection of Historic Properties (36 CFR Part 800). ACHP staff instructors provide practical advice on how to make Section 106 work smarter and more efficiently to resolve conflicts between development plans and historic preservation values. Participants receive a handbook of reference materials and a CD containing model documents, guidance materials, and reference links.
