Take Action for NARA and NHPRC Funding!

March 3, 2020—The National Coalition for History has worked with Congresspersons John Larson (D-CT)Don Young (R-AK), and Bill Pascrell (D-NJ) to seek support for additional funding in the FY 2021 budget for the National Archives and Records Administration and the National Historical Publications and Records Commission. They have circulated a “Dear Colleague” letter to their fellow representatives urging them to show their support. The letter will be sent to the chair and ranking member of the House Financial Services Appropriations Subcommittee, which has jurisdiction over the NARA and NHPRC budgets.

Please contact your Member of Congress today and ask them to sign on to the “Dear Colleague” letter in support of additional funding for NARA and the NHPRC. This one-page briefing paper prepared by our colleagues at the National Humanities Alliance (NHA) summarizes the funding challenges faced by these two agencies that are so vital to archivists and other stakeholders.

More detailed instructions on contacting your Member of Congress and background information are available on the NCH website.  And NHA has prepared an email message that you can send directly to your representative. To send a letter, click here.

The deadline for Members of Congress to sign on is March 13, so please don't delay in making your contact!
