Federal & State Reviews

Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act requires federal agencies to consider the effects of federally assisted undertakings on historic properties. The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation administers the Section 106 review process in partnership with each state's historic preservation office. This is the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) of Ohio History Connection in Ohio..

The State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) recommends that agencies use the Section 106 Review Project Summary Form and its supporting documents to submit most routine projects for review.
