Please Help Us Improve the Federal Historic Preservation Program

Federal programs such as the National Register, the Historic Tax Credit, State and Tribal grants-in-aid, Heritage Areas and Save America's Treasures are key to the preservation movement.  And yet, the effectiveness of the organizational structure of these programs has been questioned for years. Dubbed "External Programs" by the National Park Service who administers them, these programs have been neglected as evidenced by budget cuts, key management posts being left unfilled for months or years, the shifting of staff and resources to other programs, a lack of coordination with other federal initiatives and a general lack of visibility. 

Faced with massive cuts proposed to these programs and a stack of expert reports filled with unimplemented recommendations, many in the movement believe that it is now more important than ever that we tackle the visibility and functionality of program management. The Federal Historic Preservation Program Task Force was formed in early 2010 by the Preservation Action Foundation in partnership with nearly a dozen major national preservation organizations to document the condition and trajectory of the External Programs; to arrive at a consensus plan for structural improvement of these programs; and, finally, to engage with our partners in a grass-roots advocacy campaign for implementation of this plan.

Accomplishing these goals requires engaging everyone who cares about our shared heritage.  Please take ten minutes of your time to assist us in this important mission by following this link and providing your feedback:  http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/FederalPreservationSurvey

The survey will close Friday, December 17, 2010, so please follow the link today.  To learn more about the Task Force, please visit www.Preservationaction.org.
