Review & Compliance/Section 106

Although the legal power to protect historic buildings, structures, sites, objects, and districts rests primarily with local governments, federal and state laws provide some protection for historic properties affected by projects that involve federal or certain state funds, permits, or licenses. Under these federal and state laws, the South Carolina State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) helps federal and state agencies and applicants identify historic properties listed in or eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places, evaluate the impacts of proposed projects on them, and avoid or minimize negative impacts.
