Americans across the country who care deeply about the nation's heritage are strongly opposed to recently announced cuts to historic preservation and cultural programs. The Spending Reduction Act of 2011 released yesterday targets critical funding for national programs that save and protect some of America's greatest historic and cultural assets.
The Act would eliminate key programs such as Save America’s Treasures, Heritage Areas, National Endowment for the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Humanities among a host of other well established programs and initiatives. The National Trust for Historic Preservation will be collaborating closely with Congress, as well as our partners and allies in the field, to respond to these proposals and work to ensure historic preservation is adequately funded in the upcoming year.
