The National Trust Community Investment Corporation recently released this Historic Tax Credit (HTC) advocacy video, narrated by Bob Vila. Please call your Democratic Senators and ask for Historic Tax Credit enhancement provisions to be included in the infrastructure legislation. Due to the urgency and flood of email messages presently going to congressional offices, it is more impactful to call and have your point of view recorded by the receptionist. Dial 202-224-3121 to call the Capitol Switchboard and connect with your Senators:
- Introduce yourself as a constituent;
- Recite: “The Historic Tax Credit is the single most important tool for historic preservation. Unfortunately, it has not been meaningfully improved since the 1980’s. Please support and protect the Historic Tax Credit provisions in the House Reconciliation Infrastructure Bill. The current draft would benefit all HTC-eligible projects from Main Street to large-scale rehabilitation efforts across the country. Help us preserve more and preserve better!”; and
- Phone calls to your Senate offices are priority. However, please feel free to also follow-up with any office contacts you have or send an email through your Senator’s website.
