Federal Historic Preservation Advocacy—Ask the Experts


Summer brings with it a unique opportunity for historic preservation advocates. As members of congress head back to their home districts, advocates can connect with congressional members and staff without having to travel to Washington, D.C. For those who have done this a thousand times, and those who are thinking about making an appointment for the first time there are still key questions that you need answered before you go.

Join the National Trust Government Relations staff for an open Q&A session where they serve as your resource for the meetings in July and August, and to help you fine tune your summer advocacy message.

As you register for this webinar make sure to submit a question to the panel which features advocacy experts for some of the most pressing issues in preservation.

Understanding Site Ownership and Access to Gravesites Series: Beginning to Care for a Gravesite


Sourcing funding and building public investment are often critical towards preserving historic cemeteries. This webinar will review strategies for fundraising, carrying out basic preservation work, recruiting volunteers, and public interpretation and engagement.

The National Trust and National Park Service National Center for Preservation Technology and Training have partnered to develop a three-part series of webinars and workshops for people interested in exploring issues related to gravesite preservation.

Benjamin Franklin once remarked, "Show me your cemeteries and I will tell you what kind of people you have." The truth of the matter is that the laws surrounding access to, and the care of cemeteries are widely variable, affecting descendants’ and stakeholders’ abilities to contribute to the preservation of the cemeteries that hold meaning to them.

In this webinar, the third in a three-part series, staff from the National Trust of Historic Preservation and the National Parks Service will be joined by partner organizations to provide insight into the current state of the field of cemetery preservation.

State Historic Tax Credits: Opportunities for Affordable Housing and Sustainability


The world of redevelopment and state historic tax credits is changing to help address two of our country’s most pressing challenges—creating more affordable housing and lowering carbon emissions.

Retrofitting existing buildings dramatically reduces future operational carbon emissions released as result of heating, cooling, lighting, cooking, etc. Retrofitting buildings to increase their energy efficiency also has the potential to significantly reduce the amount of operational carbon released into the atmosphere. Meanwhile those creating affordable housing are twinning low-income tax credits with historic tax credits to redevelop empty upper floors on Main Street to underutilized commercial and former industrial buildings.

Hear experts in the field of historic preservation, affordable housing, and sustainability share their perspectives and get the first look at a new report by the National Trust for Historic Preservation—State Historic Tax Credits: Opportunities for Affordable Housing and Sustainability.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation gratefully acknowledges the generous support of David and Julia Uihlein who made possible the development of this report and State Historic Tax Credit Resource Guide and Data Center.
