Nearly 100 Members of Congress Sign-on to Bipartisan Historic Preservation Fund Dear Colleague Letter
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: Preservation Action
Website: https://preservationaction.org/hpf-letter-thanks/

This year 93 bipartisan Senators and Representatives, representing 34 different states and territories, signed on to the FY25 House Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) Dear Colleague letter and the FY25 Senate HPF Dear Colleague letter. The letters requested $225 million in funding for the Historic Preservation Fund, the same level Preservation Action advocated for during Historic Preservation Advocacy Week, including much-needed increases for State and Tribal Historic Preservation Offices and critically important competitive grant programs. The letters request the following funding levels for the HPF:

$70 million for State Historic Preservation Offices
$40 million for Save America's Treasures
$34 million for Tribal Historic Preservation Offices
$28 million for the African American Civil Rights grant program
$17 million for Paul Bruhn grants
$13 million for HBCU preservation grants
$11 million for the Semiquincentennial grant program
$7 million for the History of Equal Rights Grant program
$5 million for Underrepresented Communities Grants

The letters also noted the urgent need to reauthorize the Historic Preservation Fund. The House letter was led by the co-chairs of the Historic Preservation Caucus, Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH) and Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR), while the Senate letter was again led by Sen. Kirstin Gillibrand (D-NY) and Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA). The letters were submitted to the House and Senate Interior Appropriations Subcommittee last month and show substantial support for the Historic Preservation Fund.

Thank you to everyone that reached out to their members of Congress and urged them to sign-on in support of a record funding for the Historic Preservation Fund. Preservation Action would especially like to thank Reps. Turner and Blumenauer and Sens. Gillibrand and Cassidy for their efforts on these letters and continued leadership on historic preservation!

Did your Representative and Senators sign-on? Be sure to thank them! Check out the Action Alert on our website to learn more and see a complete list of signers.
