Foster the creation of funding programs for protection of designated historic resources.
Providing funding support for physical historic restoration and rehabilitation projects would significantly encourage preservation of historic resources.
Funding should be directed to resources that are designated as nationally or regionally significant. Funds could be designated, in part, for technical assistance (such as for an architect or restoration carpenter) or as matching funds in bricks and mortar projects. Creating such a funding program would require the collaboration of multiple partners. A committee of diverse stakeholders would be useful in investigating the potential mechanisms for creation of a funding program.
