First Lady Laura Bush, Honorary Chair of Preserve America, announced this week the awarding of 43 Preserve America grants for 2007 totaling nearly $2.6 million. The announcement also designated 20 new communities that have brought the national total of Preserve America cities to 501 in all 50 states and one U.S. territory (Virgin Islands). To date, projects in a total of 25 states across the U.S. have received Preserve America Grant funds, which are provided on a matching basis to assist communities with marketing, planning, and educational efforts associated with protection and appropriate use of a community’s historic and cultural sites. A second round of 2007 grants totaling $2.4 million is expected in early autumn.

The newly-designated Preserve America cities include: San Juan Bautista, California; Harlem, Georgia; Coon Rapids, Iowa; Wichita, Kansas; Franklin, Kentucky; Crowley, Louisiana; Lafayette, Louisiana; Huron Township, Michigan; Liberty, Missouri; Plattsmouth, Nebraska; Owego, New York; Salem, Oregon; Easton, Pennsylvania; Rio Grande City, Texas; Shiner, Texas; Fairmont, West Virginia; Lodi, Wisconsin; Mazomanie, Wisconsin; Stoughton, Wisconsin; and Whitewater, Wisconsin.

The First Lady’s announcement was held in the Caucus Room of the Cannon House Office Building and was hosted by the Congressional Historic Preservation Caucus, whose co-chairs are Rep. Brad Miller of North Carolina and Rep. Michael Turner of Ohio. Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne and Chairman of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation John L. Nau, III accompanied Mrs. Bush at the event. The Department of the Interior and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation are two of the key federal agencies that partner with the White House on the Preserve America initiative.
