When a federal agency finds that an undertaking may adversely affect a historic property, it must consider measures to avoid, minimize, and mitigate such adverse effects, document the resolution of the Section 106 consultation in a formal, legal agreement, and implement the measures in the agreement. In this webinar, Associate General Counsel Kelly Fanizzo will practice applying the tools for agreement writing and reviewing provided in the ACHP’s Guidance on Agreement Documents and guide participants in performing a “reality check” for agreement consultation. Cultural resources professionals and project/program managers with a strong understanding in the requirements of Section 106 consultation will benefit from this fresh look at effective strategies to execute implementable agreements in a timely manner.
