LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

BECOME A CO-SPONSOR OF H.R. 445, THE NATIONAL HERITAGE AREA ACT OF 2013

As co-chairs of the National Heritage Area Caucus, we encourage you to become a co-sponsor of H.R. 445, the National Heritage Area Act of 2013, which was recently introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The National Heritage Area Program is one of the Department of the Interior's most cost-effective initiatives, relying on a public-private partnership in which every federal dollar is matched with an average of $5.50 in other public and private funding. Heritage areas have a proven record of fostering job creation and advancing economic, cultural, historic, environmental, and community development. In addition to creating jobs, NHAs generate valuable revenue for local governments and sustain communities through revitalization and heritage tourism.
