The SOP updates and clarifies the NHPA requirements relevant to applicants and the FDIC.
The SOP serves as the requisite authorization for applicants to initiate the consultation process with the State or Tribal Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO/THPO).
The SOP incorporates the role of the THPO in the review process to take into account the responsibilities of the federal agencies pursuant to a number of statutes relating to Indian Tribes and Native Hawaiian organizations.
The SOP continues to provide for public involvement in the FDIC's NHPA compliance activities through the comment periods provided for relevant applications.
The SOP imposes no additional regulatory burden on financial institutions.
