Action Alert: Urge Congress to Support NHPRC Funding (By May 15)!

Action Needed: Urge the members of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government to provide $10 million in funding for the National Historical Publications and Records Commission for federal FY 2016.

The Issue: The President’s proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2016 recommends funding of only $5 million for the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC). This is a 35% reduction in NHPRC’s budget in just the past five years. With Congress’s current interest in defunding programs entirely, it is imperative that NHPRC be funded at $10 million to ensure a program that can effectively serve the needs of historical records programs in all states.
