FEMA is developing a Programmatic Agreement (PA) to meet its responsibilities under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) for undertakings involving elevations of buildings or structures that 45 years old or older.1 NHPA and the Section 106 regulations2 require Federal agencies to take into account the effect of their undertakings on historic properties during the planning process and consult with the State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO) and other stakeholders regarding these effects. Read complete public notice.
Any member of the public is encouraged to provide views on how elevation, acquisitions and/or mitigation reconstruction may affect historic properties and ways that these effects may be avoided, minimized, or mitigated. FEMA requests your comments on the Section 106 Programmatic Agreement for elevations by March 24, 2020.
