Great American Outdoors Act
#FixOurParks and #SaveLWCF

Great news! On August 4, 2020, the President signed into law the Great American Outdoors Act—landmark legislation that will invest up to $9.5 billion to repair historic and other assets of the National Park Service and other federal agencies. The bill also fully funds the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) at $900 million annually.

Please join us in thanking your elected officials for their role in this historic achievement. We’re eager to continue the important work of saving places, together.

Protect World Heritage around Greater Chaco
Comments due September 25

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) stewards most of the public lands in the Greater Chaco landscape that are not already protected by the National Park Service. Right now, the agency is making long-term plans to update how these lands will be managed. Public input is critical to the land management planning, and the BLM is accepting comments on the draft plan now through September 25. Help us tell BLM to protect the Greater Chaco landscape!

Strengthen the Federal Historic Tax Credit

The historic tax credit (HTC) has a proven track record of kickstarting job creation and attracting private investment, while preserving tangible links to our past. The newly released text of H.R. 2, the Moving Forward Act, includes provisions that strengthen the HTC. Join the National Trust for Historic Preservation and urge your Senators to strengthen the Historic Tax Credit in any forthcoming COVID-19 relief legislation.
