The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) developed a Prototype Programmatic Agreement (FEMA Prototype Agreement) pursuant to 36 CFR § 800.14(b)(4) in consultation with the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) and the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers to serve as a basis for negotiation of a State specific Programmatic Agreement (Agreement) with the State Historic Preservation Officer, State/Tribal Emergency Management Agency, and participating Tribes. This Programmatic Agreement addresses FEMA’s responsibilities under the National Historic Preservation Act, Pub. L. No. 89-665 (1966) (codified as amended at 54 U.S.C. § 306108), and the regulations implementing Section 106 of the NHPA (Section 106) at 36 CFR Part 800 for undertakings in the State of Louisiana in anticipation of or in the immediate aftermath of an event.  It provides for FEMA to consider the effects of its undertakings on historic properties as impacted communities and the State of Louisiana, and/or affected Tribes utilize FEMA assistance to conduct critical preparedness, response and recovery activities to safeguard public health and safety and/or to restore vital community services and functions. It conforms to the FEMA Prototype Agreement as designated by the ACHP on December 17, 2013, and was filed with the ACHP on December 21, 2016.
