The State Historical Resources Commission (SHRC) approved the CHRIS THPO Tribal Access Policy at their August 1, 2019 meeting. The Policy is limited to Tribes with a National Park Service THPO Agreement, and provides a consistent means for THPO Tribes to access all manner of cultural resource data housed at the regional Information Centers (ICs) of the California Historical Resources Information System (CHRIS). Tribes that are not approved by the National Park Service as a THPO tribe may access the CHRIS either through use of the standard CHRIS Access and Use Agreement or by executing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the appropriate Information Center(s).
