Preservation Action Joins Preservation Organizations in Supporting HPF as Part of Economic Recovery Efforts
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: Preservation Action
Website: https://preservationaction.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/HP-Assistance-Request-House-Letter-4.17.20-Final.pdf

From Preservation Action:

This week, Preservation Action joined our partners at the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers, National Association of Tribal Historic Preservation Officers and more than 30 other organizations and businesses in sending a letter to the House and Senate Appropriations Committee requesting $120 million for the Historic Preservation Fund, including:
  • $30 million to support survey and digitization for State Historic Preservation Officers and $15 million for Tribal Historic Preservation Officers.
  • $75 million for Certified Local Governments to support brick and mortar projects.
Funding for survey and digitization is critical to make sure that historic resources are protected, while at the same time guaranteeing that important infrastructure projects are not delayed. Funding for Certified Local Governments will provide much needed economic stimulus directly to local communities while preserving historic resources that help to provide a sense of place and stability for communities. Additionally the letters urge the inclusion of the Historic Tax Credit Growth and Opportunity Act (H.R 2825, S. 2615) and a temporary increase to the value of the HTC. Thanks to everyone that signed on!
