With a new Congress in place and a new Administration taking over Washington DC today, there is an urgent need for advocacy to protect the Historic Tax Credit, the Federal Government's largest investment in Historic Preservation.
President Donald Trump and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan have prioritized moving tax reform through the 115th Congress and have made it a first 100 day objective. With the new Congress this bill could move swiftly.
The threat to the Historic Tax Credit is very real and we could soon lose it!
Which is why we need YOUR ASSISTANCE! Contact your Congressman as a voter and constituent and ask them to support the HTC during tax reform efforts because it is a priority to constituents and communities in their district.
Your support and efforts are critical to statewide and national efforts to protect
important preservation programs in the new Washington DC.
Remind your elected officials this credit and preservation is a priority!
