Permit Status

Note icon. The department has changed all fill-in forms to PDF fill-in. You will be able to save and reuse these PDF forms. However, you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader 7 or higher to save the PDF fill-in form. Also, at this time the department does not accept digital signatures. If your Acrobat Reader prompts you to use one, we ask that you don't.

Historic Preservation and Section 106 Review

Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 as amended requires consideration of historic preservation by any Federal agency funding, licensing or permitting a project. For example, an ethanol project might receive direct assistance as a grant or a loan, or might be required to obtain a 404 permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Compliance with Section 106 is the responsibility of the agency, but agencies do have the authority to delegate this responsibility to the applicant or recipient.
