Take Action: Tell Congress to Restore Preservation Funding
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - Save America's Treasures, National Trust for Historic Preservation, Preserve America, funding, historic preservation, public policy, legislation, President Obama
Contributed By: National Trust for Historic Preservation
Website: http://www.preservationnation.org/take-action/advocacy-center/national-action-alerts/save-preservation-funding/take-action-congress-funding.html

In early February, President Obama released his FY 2011 budget request that would eliminate funding for Save America's Treasures and Preserve America, and cut funding for National Heritage Areas by 50%. These critical historic preservation programs matter now more than ever – not only because they protect our national heritage, but because they serve as economic development engines and job creators in the thousands of communities they serve. For example, Save America's Treasures alone has been responsible for more than 16,000 jobs since it was created just ten years ago.

We're asking you to act now and use our easy online form to send a message to your members of Congress asking them to support restoration of funding for Save America's Treasures and other preservation programs as the House and Senate work on their respective budget bills. Simply enter your zip code. It's easy and takes a few minutes. We have provided a sample letter, but we encourage you to personalize it.
