A “Dear Colleague” letter from Historic Preservation Caucus chairs Russ Carnahan (D-MO) and Mike Turner (R-OH) has been circulated on the Hill requesting increased support for the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) totaling $115 million in FY 2010, including: $55 million for State Historic Preservation Offices, of which $5 million will go toward competitive grants for survey activity; $20 million for Tribal Historic Preservation Offices; $30 million for Save America's Treasures; and $10 million for Preserve America and its grant program supporting heritage tourism and education. The letter has garnered 38 signatures to date.

In the recently enacted FY’09 omnibus spending bill the HPF received $68.984 million that reduced SAT funding to $20 million and eliminated funding for the Preserve America program.
