Sign our Historic Tax Credit Pledge to Keep our Historic Communities Vibrant!

The federal historic tax credit has been quietly and effectively breathing new life into historic buildings and revitalizing communities for more than 30 years.

You may never have heard of it, but you’ve seen what it can do. Consider Washington, DC’s Union Station, the Ferry Building in San Francisco and the Apollo Theater in New York City. These iconic structures and 38,700 others were revived with the help of the historic tax credit—preserving our nation’s heritage while generating 2.3 million jobs, attracting more than $106 billion in private investment and revitalizing neighborhoods.

Now the historic tax credit program and its positive impacts are threatened by cuts or possible elimination by Congress. We don’t have to stand for this. Sign our pledge and join the fight to save the historic tax credit -- because it works. For more information, visit

Protect the Historic Tax Credit

Sign the Pledge! 

I support the federal historic tax credit because I believe in the importance of our past in shaping our future. Our historic schools, warehouses, mills, hotels and more help define us as a nation, and the historic tax credit is a proven tool for preserving our heritage while creating vibrant places people want to live, work and visit. I pledge to join the National Trust for Historic Preservation and its allies in an effort to protect the historic tax credit, so that it may continue to enrich communities now and for generations to come.
