Project Review under Section 106 and PA History Code

BHP Review of Your Project

As the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO), BHP’s environmental review staff advise and assist federal and state agencies in determining if their projects will impact significant resources and, if so, how to address and resolve those effects. BHP encourages agencies and applicants for federal and state assistance to initiate consultation for environmental review during preliminary project planning before designs are finalized. Early consultation enables adequate time to successfully complete reviews well in advance of construction and may help facilitate permit or funding approvals. 

Information and links on specific environmental review topics are included throughout our webpages.


Environmental review of projects is assigned to the appropriate BHP architectural and archaeological review staff by region. If you have questions about a review, please consult the regional environmental review map (below) to determine who you should contact.

The Pennsylvania Departmet of Community and Economic Development provides for a historic structures reviewer  for all HUD funded programs and projects under administration by DCED.  Special forms for Section 106 consultation and compliance specifically tailored to HUD programs are available for use.  Those forms can be downloaded from DCED’s website www.newpa.com.   Please direct all inquiries regarding  HUD programs administered by DCED to the DCED Historic Preservation Specialist, Pamela Reilly at preilly@pa.gov  or 717.720.1441
