House Passes Minibus Including Interior Appropriations Bill
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: Preservation Action

From Preservation Action:

This week the House passed six of their 12 appropriations bills, 220-207, as part of a minibus spending package (H.R. 8294). This included the FY23 Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies bill, which funds the Historic Preservation Fund and other preservation priorities. The bill included $170.825 million for the Historic Preservation Fund, just below the current the FY22 enacted level of $173.072 million, but $19 million over the President's request. Once again the bill notably exceeds the current authorized level of $150 million. The full breakdown for the Historic Preservation Fund is below. 

- $58.675 million for State Historic Preservation Offices ($1 million over FY22)
- $23 million for Tribal Historic Preservation Offices ($7 million over FY22)
- $26.5 million for Save America's Treasures grants (equal to FY22)
- $10 million for competitive grants for HBCUs (equal to FY22)
- $10 million for the Paul Bruhn Historic Revitalization grants (equal to FY22)
- $22 million for African-American Civil Rights Movement grants ($250,000 over FY22)
- $4.75 million for the History of Equal Rights Grant Program ($125,000 over FY22)
- $3 million for the Semiquincentennial grant program ($7 million below FY22)
- $1.25 million for Underrepresented Communities grants (equal to FY22)
- $11.65 million for Community Project Funding ($3.622 below FY22)

Additionally, the bill includes $8.585 million for the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, a $330,000 increase over FY22. The bill also funds the Heritage Partnership Program at $29.232 million (a $2.088 million increase over FY22), which helps support National Heritage Areas. The bill's HPF funding included $11.65 million in congressionally directed spending (or Community Project Funding) for historic preservation projects. You can view a complete list of the proposed HPF projects here.

The Senate Appropriations Committee is currently drafting their FY23 Interior funding bill and is expected to release a draft by the end of the month. Interior Secretary Deb Haaland testified before the committee last week. Preservation Action submitted testimony in June, recommending the Committee to support $200 million for the Historic Preservation Fund. Given disagreements between Democrats and Republicans on top line spending numbers, lawmakers will likely need to pass a continuing resolution, extending current funding until after the midterm elections. Preservation Action will continue to monitor the appropriations process and urge Congress to support robust funding for the HPF.
