Project Review Submission Guidance
In order for the Bureau for Historic Preservation (Pennsylvania State Historic Preservation Office) to advise and assist a federal agency or state agency (or their consultants) in completing its responsibilities as set forth in Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act and the Pennsylvania History Code, the Bureau has developed a Request to Initiate Consultation in Compliance with the State History Code and Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act submission form to simplify the review process.

The procedures for consultation under Chapter 5 of the Pennsylvania History Code and Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, are explained in detail on their respective web pages:  Section 106 of the NPHA and Chapter 5 of the Pennsylvania History Code.
