National Historic Preservation Act Section 106 Review Process
Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) requires federal agencies to consider the potential effects of their actions on historic properties and look for ways to avoid, minimize, or mitigate them. The Navy's outreach efforts will support consultation under Section 106 of the NHPA and its implementing regulations at 36 Code of Federal Regulations Part 800 – Protection of Historic Properties, as members of the public are invited to participate, provide comments, or raise concerns during established public comment periods.
Public involvement is an important part of the NHPA Section 106 process. The Navy encourages the public to share information and concerns regarding historic properties by providing a written comment during designated public comment periods. Historic properties may include archaeological sites, sacred and religious sites, submerged historic resources, traditional cultural properties, or historic buildings, structures, or objects.
For information about the NHPA Section 106 consultation process, or if you are interested in becoming a consulting party, please provide your name, organization, and email address.
