Alliance of National Heritage Areas Reacts to Passage of National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: Alliance of National Heritage Areas
Website: http://www.nationalheritageareas.us

The Alliance of National Heritage Areas applauds the action of Congress to protect and support the work of National Heritage Areas (NHAs) across the nation. The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) included language reauthorizing 14 National Heritage Areas. Allen Sachse, ANHA Chair stated, “We are very grateful, as this bill will provide some much needed stability and security for many National Heritage Areas.”

Sachse added, “While the action is essential to carry on the work of these longstanding NHA partnerships, the ANHA believes the real solution is the passage of National Heritage Areas program legislation, which will strengthen the NPS partnership and support, as well as provide standards for designation, planning, and evaluation of all NHAs. The ANHA will continue to work in that direction.”

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the first NHA designated by Congress. NHAs are places where natural, cultural, and historic resources combine to form a cohesive, nationally-important landscape. Through the collective resources of partners, NHAs tell significant stories that celebrate our nation's diverse heritage. NHAs are lived-in landscapes. NHAs are managed by local entities working in partnership with the National Park Service (NPS), the states, and local agencies, balancing the protection of resources and enhancement of local economies. The work of NHAs supports more than 148,000 jobs nationwide.

NHAs are a proven model of how sharing responsibility can be a very cost-effective approach for the NPS to preserve and tell the many significant stories of America. The NHAs stride to increase the capacity of local agencies as well as to improve the quality of service provided by local partners. NHAs have leveraged additional funds beyond NPS funding at a ratio of 4-to-1 to support the enhancement and management of the key resources.
