well as other activities that include the substantial rehabilitation,
demolition, conversion, and new construction of residential and
non-residential properties, each of which is an undertaking
(Undertaking) as defined pursuant to 36 CFR 800.16(y); and
HUD has determined that some of the Undertakings funded by its
Housing, PIH, and CPD programs have limited potential to affect
properties included in or eligible for inclusion in the National
Register of Historic Places and has consulted with the Minnesota
State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) pursuant to 36 CFR800.14 of
the regulations implementing Section 106; and
Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) issued in 1995 and
revised in 2006 a "Policy Statement on Affordable Housing and
Historic Preservation" that addresses implementation principles
for Section 106 compliance, and those principles have been utilized
in developing this Agreement; and
HUD has invited the [tribes] to consult in the development of this
Agreement, in recognition of the unique government-to-government
relationship between the Federal government and federally-recognized
Indian tribes and all those tribes who commented are invited to
participate in this agreement as Invited Signatories; and

the comments and participation of Indian tribes that attach religious
and cultural significance to historic properties that may be affected

is encountered, or a known historic property may be affected in an
unanticipated manner, HUD shall assume its responsibilities pursuant
to 36 C.F.R. Part 800.13.

remains are discovered during project construction, that portion of
the project shall stop immediately and the project manager shall
notify HUD, SHPO/THPO, and other consulting party signatories within
forty-eight (48) hours, and shall take appropriate steps to
immediately secure the site.
Remains: HUD shall consult with the SHPO/THPO and tribes, if
appropriate, to determine if the discovered site appears eligible
for the NRHP. If it does appear eligible, HUD shall submit a
plan for the
avoidance, protection, recovery of information, or destruction
without data recovery to the SHPO for review and comment. The
treatment plan shall be consistent
with the ACHP’s handbook Treatment
of Archaeological Properties and
subsequent amendments and SHPO guidelines.
HUD shall notify all consulting parties of the unanticipated
discovery and provide the proposed treatment plan for their comment.
Construction work in the area of the discovery shall not continue
until the plan has been accepted by the signatory parties and

notify local law enforcement and the Office of the State
Archaeologist (OSA). HUD shall also immediately notify the SHPO,
concurring parties, and appropriate Tribes within twenty-four
(24) hours via email, fax, or telephone. In keeping with the
guidance in Advisory
Council on Historic Preservation Policy Statement Regarding
Treatment of Burial Sites, Human Remains and Funerary Objects,
HUD shall include appropriate consultation with descendent
communities. The OSA shall coordinate with the Minnesota Indian
Affairs Council (MIAC) if the remains are thought to be Native
American, in accordance with Minnesota Statute (M.S.) 307.08. OSA
will have the final authority in determining if the remains are
human. HUD will ensure that a qualified archaeologist provides a
recommendation on the NRHP eligibility of the discovery,
including the human remains, to HUD within seventy-two (72) hours
of receipt of notification. HUD will inform SHPO and any Indian
tribes that may attach religious and cultural significance to the
property, of the discovery.
it is determined that the identified bones are human remains
covered under M.S. 307.08, the OSA shall have jurisdiction to
ensure that the appropriate procedures in accordance with
Minnesota statutes are fulfilled. OSA is the lead state agency
for authentication of burial sites on non-federal lands as per
M.S. 307.08. HUD shall work with OSA, SHPO, the Tribes, MIAC, and
other parties to develop and implement a reburial plan if that is
the preferred approach by the parties. Avoidance and preservation
in place is the preferred option for the treatment of human
remains. If HUD also determines that the burial site is eligible
for the NRHP, HUD and SHPO shall work with OSA, Tribes and MIAC
on determining appropriate treatment and mitigation.
HUD from time to time may conduct
undertakings in response to natural disasters, including, but not
limited to, floods, tornadoes, earthquakes, wind storms and fires.
Such undertakings may be exempt from federal environmental review
requirements if they are limited to immediate rescue and salvage
operations. Review of other necessary activities that respond to
immediate threats to human life and property within thirty (30) days
following a declared disaster, may be expedited pursuant to
36 CFR 800.12.
