President Biden Releases FY22 Budget Request, Includes Significant Increases for Historic Preservation

From Preservation Action:

This afternoon President Biden released his FY22 Budget Request. This includes specific programmatic requests for the Department of Interior and the National Park Service. Overall the budget requests $3.5 billion for the National Park Service, an increase of $380.6 million over FY21 enacted levels. This includes $151.8 million for the Historic Preservation Fund, an increase of $7.5 million over FY21 enacted levels. The request includes much needed increases for State and Tribal Historic Preservation Offices and important increases for competitive grant programs. The full breakdown is below:
  • $57.675 million for State Historic Preservation Offices ($2 million over FY21)
  • $23 million for Tribal Historic Preservation Offices ($8 million over FY21)
  • $25 million for the Save America's Treasures grant program (equal to FY21)
  • $10 million for competitive grants for HBCUs (equal to FY21)
  • $10 million for the Paul Bruhn Historic Revitalization grants ($2.5 million over FY21)
  • $26.125 million for African American Civil Rights and competitive grant programs ($5 million over FY21)
If enacted, this would represent a record level of funding for the Historic Preservation Fund. The request also calls for $15 million to expand capacity at more than 70 NPS units and programs to preserve and tell the stories of underrepresented groups.  The request also highlighted the Traditional Trades Apprenticeship Program, which provides hands-on historic preservation trade skills training to young adults.

Preservation Action appreciates the administration's strong support of historic preservation included in the budget request, and especially their commitment to preserving the sites and stories of historically underrepresented and marginalized communities. We look forward to working with Congress over the coming weeks and months as they kick off the appropriations process.
