The Environmental Review Process

One role of the Pennsylvania Bureau for Historic Preservation (Pennsylvania State Historic Preservation Office) is to advise and assist state and federal agencies in complying with their responsibilities under various legislation, such as the National Historic Preservation Act, that protect historic properties. To meet this goal, the Bureau has established the Environmental Review process, through which it reviews projects for their potential to affect historic properties. 

For information on the Environmental Review process in Pennsylvania, including procedures, forms, and contacts for applicants, please visit the Project Review under Section 106 and PA History Code section of our Web site.

For more information on the types and benefits of activities conducted by the Pennsylvania Bureau for Historic Preservation, view a Powerpoint Presentation (Microsoft Powerpoint, 30 MB).

For more information on working with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, visit the Web site of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation.

The National Register Program section of our Web site also contains important resources.

The National Park Service (NPS) has many valuable resources.  National Register publications provides forms and bulletins. National Register research includes a searchable database of National Register listings.
