From Preservation Action:
This week, a bipartisan group of 120 Representatives signed on to the House FY21 Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) Dear Colleague Letter. This shows an incredible level of support for historic preservation. Led by the co-chairs of the Historic Preservation Caucus, Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) and Rep, Michael Turner (R-OH), the letter request full funding for the HPF at $150 million. This marks the same level of funding Preservation Action advocated for during Advocacy Week. Overall this is highest level of funding ever requested in the HPF Dear Colleague Letter and 2nd highest number of signers.
The letter was submitted to the House Interior Appropriations Subcommittee. Thanks to everyone that reached out to your Representatives over the last few weeks and helped make this possible. And a special thank you to Congressman Blumenauer and Congressman Turner for their efforts on the HPF Dear Colleague letter and their continued leadership on historic preservation.
