Historic Preservation Solutions to Build Back Better 

04-14-2021 13:36

The National Trust for Historic Preservation has sent the Biden-Harris Administration a new report describing the many ways historic preservation aligns with the President’s efforts to address some of our nation’s most pressing challenges. The Administration has identified several priorities that includes catalyzing economic recovery, confronting racial equity challenges, and prioritizing climate change. Historic preservation supports these priorities by promoting economic growth, helping communities rebuild, advancing policies that celebrate historic places to advance racial equity, and encouraging sustainable and equitable development in both rural and urban environments. The National Trust published Historic Preservation Solutions to Build Back Better, to provide more detailed information about how historic preservation supports these broader policy objectives. From supporting America’s Main Street commercial districts in small towns and big cities, to the rehabilitation and reuse of older buildings, to meeting community needs such as affordable housing, the report conveys the National Trust and the broader historic preservation community’s interest in working with the Administration to accomplish these shared social and economic objectives.
