Project Review, Applicable Laws & Regulations
FEMA’s National Emergency Training Center, Frederick Co.
Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended, along with its implementing regulations
36 CFR Part 800, is the primary federal law regarding review of federal projects for effects on historic
preservation and is commonly referred to as "Section 106." The Maryland Historical Trust Act of 1985 as
amended, State Finance and Procurement Article §§ 5A- 325 and 5A-326 of the Annotated Code of Maryland, is
the comparable state law. To ensure consistency for projects with both federal and state involvement, MHT
follows the process set forth in 36 CFR Part 800 for reviewing state assisted actions.
The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation provides
detailed online Section 106 guidance and offers formal training opportunities about Section 106.
