Georgians for Preservation Action (GaPA) is the statewide coordinating

council for historic preservation advocacy. Since its founding in 1987,

GaPA has advocated laws, programs, and policies that promote the

preservation of Georgia’s historic resources by mobilizing grassroots

preservationists across the state. Since 1987, The Georgia Trust has

provided staff to work with GaPA's coordinating committee to organize

efforts and produce an annual Legislative Agenda.

In addition to promoting this year's priority issue, to maintain current

state funding levels for those state and federal programs that deliver

critical preservation services in Georgia, GaPA also voted to support the

Coalition for Full Funding of the Historic Preservation Fund. In so doing,

GaPA joins other Georgia groups (including The City of Cartersville, the

College of Environment and Design- University of Georgia, the Georgia

Alliance of Preservation Commissions, The Georgia Trust for Historic

Preservation, and Piedmont Preservation) in supporting this important

funding source.

To read more about the Historic Preservation Fund and to stay informed

on how the President's Budget Request effects historic preservation,

Preservation's Congressional Affair's Director.
