Brockington Supports Historic Preservation Priorities in Washington D.C.

Mar 24, 2015

Ralph Bailey, Senior Archaeologist and Branch Chief of our Charleston Office, recently traveled to Washington D.C. to take part in the 2015 National Historic Preservation Advocacy Week with the American Cultural Resource Association (ACRA).  An annual event, Advocacy Week brings together a number of groups to target legislative priorities for historic preservation nationwide. Specific priorities this year included the allocation of $60 million for the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) for Fiscal Year 2016, including $10 million in competitive grants. Along with a 40% state match, the HPF provides critical funding for State Historic Preservation Offices.  A second priority is the continued support of the federal Historic Tax Credit (HTC) program. The HTC is administered by the National Park Service and Internal Revenue Service in conjunction with State Historic Preservation Offices to support all types of income producing historic buildings.

As part of the South Carolina Delegation, Mr. Bailey met with Senator Tim Scott while participating in the meetings in D.C. You can read more about the goals and accomplishments of Advocacy Week at the Preservation Action website.
