Programmatic Agreements (PAs) offer a more streamlined process for grantees to satisfy their historic preservation requirements with minimum or no consultation with the State Historic Preservation Officer based on the type of activity that is being undertaken. Below, find state-specific executed PAs. The executed agreements apply to counties, municipalities, and other local governments within the respective state receiving the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) financial assistance awards to ensure comprehensive coverage of DOE's program grantees.

A Program Comment was issued by the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) on March 11, 2013, pursuant to 36 CFR 800.14(e), published in the Federal Register on March 14, 2013, and extends the duration of the existing Programmatic Agreements—and any future agreements that may be executed under the prototype PA—until Dec. 31, 2020. View the Federal Register Notice for more information.

In 2020, DOE in cooperation with the ACHP and the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers (NCSHPO), developed an amendment to extend the expiration date of the executed subsequent PAs. All grantees elected to extend their agreement with DOE.  Most amendments extend the agreements until Dec. 31, 2030, while some states opted to extend their agreements until Dec. 31, 2025.  All amendments to the agreements are listed below.

DOE provides an annual report to ACHP and NCSHPO summarizing the undertakings and reviews conducted under these agreements. This report presents DOE’s summary of undertakings and reviews from Sept. 1–Aug. 31 of each year. These reports can be found on the DOE Annual Historic Preservation Reports webpage
