Preservation Action, along with our partners at the National Alliance of Preservation Commissions and National Association of Tribal Historic Preservation Officers, is excited announce the launch of our 2020 Congressional Candidate Historic Preservation Survey. Preservation Action is surveying U.S House and Senate candidates across the country to gauge support of key national preservation programs and policies. We plan to share the results of the survey widely before the November election. We conducted a candidate survey prior to the 2016 and 2018 elections and received hundreds of responses. We are excited to hear from even more candidates this year and will be working with our network of state and local preservation organizations to help spread the word.

The goal of the survey is multi-faceted; to educate congressional candidates on the federal historic preservation program, gauge their level of support for critically important preservation programs and policies, educate PA members and supporters on the candidates positions and gain useful insights into congressional candidates background with historic preservation. Using the results of our Grassroots Survey as a guide, the survey asks the following questions:

1. Would you support increased funding for the Historic Preservation Fund? 

2. Would you support efforts to enhance the Federal Rehabilitation Tax Credit (HTC) program? 

3. Changes proposed by the National Park Service to the National Register of Historic Places and the recent changes to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) regulations have the potential to impact how and if historic and tribal cultural places are taken into account in the federal project planning process. Would you support policies that assure the impact to historic places continue to be considered in the federal project planning process? 

4. Does historic preservation play an important role in your state/district? How so? Describe any personal connections to historic preservation or historic sites. Is there a specific historic place in your district that is important to you and your constituents?

Check out our 2020 Historic Preservation Congressional Candidate Survey to learn more and stay tuned, as we plan to have the results of the survey ready by October, prior to the November elections.
