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.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
Opportunity Zones and Small Business Revolving Loan Programs
Investors, developers and small business owners need to know about Federal Tax Incentives and Small Business Resources that are available in your area. The South Central Planning Region has 14 Federally designated Opportunity Zone census tracts that qualify for tax incentives related to Capital Gains. The incentive will benefit a range of stakeholders and bring investment to low-income communities. Stakeholder meetings are being planned for each of the SCPDC parishes. The goals encourage Long-Term capital investment in low-income urban and rural communities. The projected outcome ends with equity and the launch of development projects that may not have otherwise happened.
To view the Opportunity Zone areas please visit LED’s interactive map.
