Dear Preservationist, 

Transportation Enhancements (TE), the single largest source of federal funding for historic preservation, is still under siege.With your help, we successfully fought off crippling amendments in the Senate last fall. But as the Senate considers transportation reauthorization proposals beginning this week, the TE program could be in peril.

MAP-21 (S. 1813) eliminates dedicated funding for TE, forcing the program to compete with other types of road projects that do not possess the same job creation or cultural heritage benefits as preservation-oriented TE projects. In addition, we anticipate harmful amendments that would further weaken the program.To make matters worse, the outlook for TE is even bleaker in the House. Current proposals not only eliminate the funding set aside but also eliminate the preservation-related categories of the TE program entirely. This is why it is critical to get favorable TE language into the Senate bill.

Please help us communicate the critical need for this program to your Senators. Ask your Senators to support full funding and functionality of the Transportation Enhancements programin order to create jobs, revitalize historic places and enhance our quality of life.

Thank you for speaking out on the importance of the Transportation Enhancement program to your Senators. In the inspirational words of Senator Barbara Boxer on threats to TE, “We cannot turn our backs on historic preservation.”Sincerely,

Your friends at the National Trust for Historic Preservation
