    Over the last forty years the HPF has allowed everyday Americans to tell the stories of our shared past. The HPF not only provides funding for State and Tribal Historic Preservation Offices, it is also the pathway for rural communities and urban areas alike in our great state of [STATE] to receive millions of dollars in grants to preserve the places we think are important to our history. Please support either H.R. 2817, a stand-alone bill which would reauthorize HPF for seven years, or the Senate Energy Bill, S. 2012, which would permanently reauthorize the HPF.
