Reauthorize the Historic Preservation Fund

I respectfully request that you ensure legislation reauthorizing the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) is passed during this legislative session. Over the last forty years the HPF has allowed everyday Americans to tell the stories of our shared past. The HPF not only provides funding for State and Tribal Historic Preservation Offices, it is also the pathway for rural communities and urban areas alike to receive millions of dollars in grants to preserve the places we think are important to our history.

Please support either H.R. 2817, a stand-alone bill which would reauthorize HPF for seven years, or the Senate Energy Bill, S. 2012, which would permanently reauthorize the HPF.

Thank you for your time. I appreciate your consideration of my request and your dedication to America's history.
