BLM Listening Session on Extending NHPA Nationwide Programmatic Agreement


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Headquarters Division of Education, Cultural and Paleontological Resources invites you to participate in a Zoom meeting to learn about the agency’s plans for a two-year extension of the National Programmatic Agreement (nPA) for National Historic Preservation Act implementation. The agreement will expire in February of 2022, and the bureau intends to extend the nPA until February of 2024. This two-year extension will allow nPA signatories time to review the effectiveness of the nPA. Signatories include the BLM, the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation and the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers.

During this meeting, the BLM will briefly summarize the components of the nPA and outline procedural requirements for the two-year extension. The presentation will be recorded and made available on-line for those that wish to view it later. A question-and-answer (Q&A) session will follow the presentation, and Q&A summary notes will be shared with meeting participants and made available upon request.

The meeting will take place on June 29, 2021 from 10:00 – 11:30 am mountain time. The meeting can be accessed at the “ZoomGov Meeting” link included in this email message below my contact information.

If you wish to become more familiar with the BLM’s nPA, you may access the document at this link. You can also review State Protocol Agreements executed under the authority of the nPA available here (see right hand sidebar).
