Laws Applicable to Review

Review and Compliance:
Applicable Laws

Each year, thousands of projects affect historic properties in Georgia, ranging from road construction to cell towers, from sewer lines to building rehabilitation. Many of these projects are funded by, or require permits or licenses from, government agencies. Thousands of previously undocumented historic properties have been identified through HPD review of projects and studies carried out to comply with environmental review requirements. Consideration of historic properties during the early planning phases of a project, in many cases, results in their protection.  The following are the different laws that require or recommend HPD’s review of projects (click links for details):

 - Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended
 - Section 110 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended
 - Georgia Environmental Policy Act
 - State Agency Historic Property Stewardship Program
