Urge Congress to Reauthorize the Historic Preservation Fund

October 19, 2023

The authorization to fund the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) expired at the end of September 2023 after Congress did not act before the deadline.

The HPF has historically been authorized at $150 million annually, an amount that we are working to increase. This authorization sets the amount Congress is approved to appropriate for the HPF each year.

We need your help! Your voice is needed to urge Congress to reauthorize the HPF and support the important work of the preservation movement to preserve the full history of our nation and the many important stories that contribute to the American experience.

Urge Congress to support efforts to reauthorize the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF).

The HPF has been a steadfast guardian of our historic treasures for over four decades, enabling communities to protect and celebrate the places that define who we are. The HPF supports State Historic Preservation Officers (SHPOs), Tribal Historic Preservation Officers (THPOs), and several critical competitive grant programs.
