National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) Process

Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) requires that federal agencies consider any effect or potential effect of projects they carry out, approve or fund on historic properties listed in or eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. 

The U.S. Army has initiated the Section 106 process with notification to the Virginia State Historic Preservation Office. Army National Military Cemeteries is soliciting participation from the public and other stakeholders to seek input and information regarding the identification of, and potential effects to, historic properties associated with this undertaking. 

From Oct. 4 through Nov. 21, 2023, ANMC sought and received public comments specifically on assessment of effects and mitigation measures.
