When Congress passes a new law, most people wonder: “Does this affect me? And if so, how?” The new transportation law enacted by Congress last fall has preservationists asking these same questions.Effective October 1, 2012, Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) is a $120 billion two-year bill that includes a dramatic restructuring of transportation programs and processes. These changes will affect the various transportation funding programs and project review and delivery that have proven to be immensely beneficial to historic preservation projects over the past 20 years. MAP-21 is still a viable source of funding for historic preservation-related projects, and preservationists need to become familiar with the new programs and policies of the law and be creative in thinking about how to access available funds. This Forum Focus will explain these changes and how they affect historic preservation as well as the importance of getting involved in transportation planning.
