Project Review & Compliance (Section 106)

The Division of Historic Resources (DHR) is New Hampshire's State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO). Under state and federal laws, the DHR works with other governmental agencies to review publicly-assisted projects that may affect historical or archeological resources. Historic preservation "Review & Compliance" (R&C) is a consultation process to identify significant historic properties in the planning stage of a project, so that any harm to them can be avoided or minimized. It is intended to be a conflict-resolution and problem-solving process that balances the public interest in historic preservation with the public benefit from a variety of governmental initiatives.

To begin review and consultation with the DHR, project proponents MUST complete and submit a Request for Project Review (RPR) Form. These procedures were created to help streamline the review process and minimize delays caused by incomplete information submitted at the time of the initial review request. For additional questions regarding project review please contact the R&C Specialist at 603.271.3558 or christina.st.louis@dcr.nh.gov

To submit a request for project review please mail the completed RPR Form along with a self-addressed stamped envelope and required materials to:
