From Preservation Action:
With the 2022 midterm elections just around the corner, Preservation Action is excited to announce the results of our 2022 Historic Preservation Congressional Candidate Survey! With the help of our network of state and local historic preservation organizations, we surveyed U.S House and Senate candidates in all 50 states in an effort to keep Americans informed on where their candidates for office stand on national historic preservation programs and policies, like the Historic Preservation Fund, federal Historic Tax Credit and National Historic Preservation Act. The survey also serves as a tool to educate candidates on key historic preservation programs.
We received responses from 115 congressional candidates, representing 39 states. The results show historic preservation is recognized as an important federal policy initiative by candidates from across the country, and across the political spectrum. In response to the survey, 94% of candidates expressed support for robust funding for the Historic Preservation Fund, 88% would support efforts to permanently reauthorize and enhance the Historic Preservation Fund, 95% believe the Federal Rehabilitation Tax Credit should be enhanced, and 94% support the consideration of historic resources on the federal planning process. Candidates also responded to an open-ended question on the important role historic preservation plays in their state/district. Check out the complete results of our candidate survey today!
