One of 2014's New Orleans' Nine Most Endangered is the Federal Historic Tax Credit, which gives developers a tax credit worth 20 percent of qualifying restoration expenses for historically-appropriate renovations of buildings 50 years or older.  The National Trust is attempting to reach 600 organizational sign-on's to a letter to Congress. So far the letter has 400 signers and the goal is to obtain an additional 200 by July 8th when Congress returns from break.
 
Louisiana Landmarks Society has signed on, and we are asking you to forward this email to any preservation partners you support and ask them to sign onto this important letter and add their voice to the campaign to protect the historic tax credit. Reach beyond preservation groups, ask local companies, developers, firms, etc. anyone who understands the importance of preservation and the federal tax credit to our communities. 
 
We can hit 600 in the next 48 hours if we all reach out to our own networks. To sign on, email Carl Wolf at the National Trust at cwolf@savingplaces.org
