The Atchafalaya Heritage Area has been designated by Congress as a National Heritage Area.
Section 106 review takes its name from Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended (NHPA). Section 106 requires federal agencies or their applicants to take into account the effects of their undertakings on historic structural and archaeological properties. The Section 106 process must be completed prior to the spending of federal funds or issue of a federal license or permit for the undertaking. The Section 106 process must be conducted as directed by federal regulation (36 CFR Part 800).
