Historic Preservation Caucus Needs More Members
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - Congressional Historic Preservation Caucus, Congress, preservation of historic places and structures, historic preservation economic development
Contributed By: The National Trust for Historic Preservation's Department of Public Policy
Website: http://www.nationaltrust.org

The Congressional Historic Preservation Caucus was formed in 2003 as a forum for Members of Congress to discuss ways to protect and revitalize America's historic places and structures, as well as to focus on historic preservation's important role in economic development and neighborhood revitalization. The Caucus also serves as a clearinghouse for members seeking information and sharing ideas on national, tribal, state, and local issues and opportunities in historic preservation, including:

  • Rehabilitation of historic buildings and historic districts;
  • Heritage tourism;
  • Preservation of national, tribal, state, and local landmarks;
  • Economic revitalization of older downtown districts, historic towns, and underused historic housing stock;
  • Providing opportunities for students to learn American history where it happened;
  • Resources and legislation to support Federal, tribal, state, and local efforts; and,
  • Support for national parks, national monuments and historic scenic trails.

If your Representative has not joined the Caucus, urge him or her to do so by using the sample letter at http://www.preservationaction.org/caucus/caucusletter.htm.
