Project submissions for Section 106 review must include the Cover Sheet for Section 106 Review and Compliance, completed to the greatest extent possible. The only exceptions are cultural resource reports prepared by consultants in accordance with the KHC/SHPO specifications or projects submitted under an existing programmatic agreement, where the required submission materials are clearly dictated in the agreement. If you are an applicant unsure whether this applies to you, we recommend using the cover sheet until you can verify otherwise. Please refer to the Instructions for completing the KHC Section 106 Cover Sheet.
The cover sheet is designed to assist applicants by specifying the information Site Protection staff most often need to complete Section 106 reviews. If all fields are not completed, staff may need to request additional information, and this could result in a delay for applicants awaiting staff comments. A hard copy of the cover sheet must be submitted via mail or delivery to Craig Potts, Kentucky Heritage Council Executive Director and State Historic Preservation Officer, the Barstow House, 410 High
Street, Frankfort, KY 40601.
Under federal law 36 CFR Part 800, Site Protection staff have 30 calendar days to review projects beginning with the date each project is received in this office. However, efforts are made to review projects as quickly as possible, and the review process often requires less time. The best way to ensure that Site Protection staff can complete a review in a timely manner is to make sure that all information submitted is thorough and accurate. When staff must ask for more information, the 30-day clock will start anew once the requested information is received.
The Kentucky State Clearinghouse, or eClearinghouse, is a single point of contact created by the Kentucky Department for Local Government for multiple agencies that might be required to comment on a federal project. The information available to reviewers through the eClearinghouse does not usually reflect the full range of information an applicant may have submitted in a funding application, often resulting in additional requests for information. As a result, the Kentucky Heritage Council does not currently participate in eClearinghouse. Those who try to submit projects for review through this portal will receive an automatic response directing applicants to submit a project via hard copy using the KHC cover sheet as described above.
