From Preservation Action:

As Congress begins work on the FY21 budget and appropriations, the bipartisan co-chairs of the Historic Preservation Caucus, Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) and Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH), are leading the  FY21 Historic Preservation Fund Dear Colleague Letter. The letter calls for appropriating the fully authorized $150 million in funding for the HPF for the first time, and will match our Advocacy Week request. This includes increases for State and Tribal Historic Preservation Offices, and increases to critically important competitive grant programs.The letter will be submitted to the House Interior Appropriations Subcommittee. See the full breakdown below.
  • State Historic Preservation Offices: $61 million
  • Tribal Historic Preservation Offices: $22 million
  • African-American Civil Rights Movement Grants: $20 million
  • Civil Rights Grants for All Americans: $8 million
  • Historically Black Colleges and Universities: $10 million
  • Survey Grants for Underrepresented Communities: $1 million
  • Save America's Treasures Grants: $18 million
  • Paul Bruhn Historic Revitalization Grants: $10 million 
This marks a strong commitment to the HPF and we can't thank Representatives Blumenauer and Turner enough for their continued support and leadership on the HPF. Urge your Representative to sign-on to the FY21 Historic Preservation Fund Dear Colleague Letter. Members can sign-on by contacting Jon Bosworth in Rep. Blumenauer's office or Dan Hare in Rep. Turner's office. The deadline for signatures is Tuesday, March 17th, 2020.

If you already have a contact in your Representative's office, reach out to them directly. If not, call your Representative's office and ask to speak to the staff person in charge of historic preservation issues. Let them know who you are and why historic preservation matters to you. Urge them to sign-on to the Historic Preservation Fund Dear Colleague Letter being circulated by Representatives Blumenauer and Turner. 

To maximize the impact of the letter, we need as many members of Congress to sign-on as possible. Stay tuned for details regarding the Senate HPF dear colleague letter.
