National Historic Preservation Act
The National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 is the nation’s primary historic preservation law. It defines the legal responsibilities of federal agencies for the management of historic properties. Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act requires agencies to consider potential effects of actions that involve federal funding on historic properties, such as buildings and archaeological sites. The purpose of the programmatic agreement is to streamline the review process by allowing qualified MDOT staff to perform much of the work required under Section 106.
