It is divided into $46.925 million for State Historic Preservation Offices, $9.985 million for Tribal Historic Preservation Offices, $500,000 for grants to underrepresented communities, and $8 million for grants to preserve the sites and stories of the Civil Rights Movement. The Administration's budget proposal for FY 17 (October 1, 2016-September 30, 2017) requests $87.4 million for the Historic Preservation Fund, $22 million more than the FY 16 appropriation. The proposal has $46.9 million for State Historic Preservation Offices (same as FY 16), $11.98 million for Tribal Historic Preservation Offices ($2 million more than FY 16), $25 million for the Civil Rights Movement program ($17 million more than FY 16), $500,000 for survey grants for underrepresented communities (same as FY 16), and $3 million for Historic Black Colleges and Universities (new). The appropriation for the state historic preservation offices has not been increased the last four years. Historic Preservation Fund

Preservation Fund (HPF) SHPOs Movement Initiative & grants Historic Black Survey Grants for Underrepresented communities [Chart created by the National Trust for Historic Preservation] The Historic Preservation Fund authorization expired September 30, 2015. Four pending bills in Congress have HPF reauthorization provisions. The National Historic Preservation Amendment Act of 2015 (H.R. 2817) would reauthorize the HPF through 2025 at the current authorized level of $150 million annually. The Energy Policy Modernization Act (S. 2012) would permanently authorize the HPF. The American Energy Innovation Act (S. 2089) also would permanently authorize the HPF, but goes a step further than S. 2012 towards full, permanent funding by requiring the funds to be available without needing an appropriation. And S. 556, called a sportsmen's package bill, has a provision to permanently authorize the HPF. Preservation Action has prepared one page information sheets on the HPF, the state historic preservation offices, the tribal historic preservation offices, the historic tax credits, and the HPF reauthorization. They are posted at http:///www.preservationaction.org/advocacy-week/. Office of History and Archaeology FY 17 budget The state administration's FY 2017 operating budget proposal has a $13,500 decrease in General Fund Match (GFM) for the Office of History and Archaeology. The state funds match the annual federal Historic Preservation Fund award that provides Alaska with 60% of the funding for the state historic preservation program (SHPO). The proposed decrease will be a larger overall reduction for the office with the loss of the federal match funds. Much of the total amount for the Office of History and Archaeology in state budget documents is authorization-to-receive grant and project money from a variety of sources including the HPF. The OHA section in the administration's budget can be found at: table.html?dept=DNR&fy=17&type=Proposed Alaska Historical Commission news The Alaska Historical Commission met February 23rd and reviewed applications for projects that will help commemorate the 150th anniversary of the 1867 Alaska Treaty of Cession. Awards were made to: Alaska Historical Society, $15,000, for online history articles about the Treaty of Cession and Alaska in the 1860s, suggested resources, and a calendar of commemoration events. Anchorage Museum, $6,000, to bring a copy of the treaty and the cancelled check for the purchase to exhibit in 2017. Anchorage School District, $15,000, for a sesquicentennial curriculum that will be shared with all Alaska school districts. Juneau Community Foundation, $13,025, for interpretive signs to enhance the William H. Seward statue being made. Kodiak Historical Society & Baranov Museum, $12,150, for a new exhibit on the later years of Russian America and the Treaty of Cession. University of Alaska Museum of the North, $14.969, for an exhibit on Interior Alaska in the 1860s using artifacts from three archaeological sites. In other commission news, the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) announced its 18th Annual Leadership Awards in February. Lt. Governor Byron Mallott received the Native American Leadership Award, observing "his public leadership and in-depth knowledge of and advocacy for Alaska Native issues are unparalleled." The narrative notes Mallott is the second Alaska Native elected Lt. Governor of the State of Alaska, and he has been Alaska Area Vice President for the National Congress of American Indians, mayor of Juneau and of Yakutat, president of the Alaska Federation of Natives, and executive director of the Alaska Permanent Fund Corporation. The NCAI is the oldest, largest and most representative American Indian and Alaska Native organization in the country (http://www.ncai.org/). Congratulations Lt. Governor! Also at the February meeting, commission members re-elected Jonathon Ross to serve as vice-chair of the commission for 2016.

St. Matthew's Episcopal Church in Fairbanks added to National Register The Keeper of the National Register of Historic Places added St. Matthew's Episcopal Church in Fairbanks to the nation's list of significant properties worthy of preservation on February 12, 2016. St. Matthew's Church, established when Fairbanks was founded in 1904, has played a significant role in the history of the community. From the start, the congregation embodied the philosophy of the first Episcopal Bishop of Alaska, Peter Trimble Rose, and pioneering missionary Archdeacon Hudson Stuck, to care for the welfare of the people of Fairbanks and surrounding Native and rural communities. Through the years the church has been a leader in starting social services in Fairbanks, opening a hospital and reading room in its earliest years, and in the 1960s partnering with other congregations to start an alcohol rehabilitation program and soup kitchen for Fairbanks. The log church stands on First Avenue just outside of the historic commercial center of Fairbanks. It was constructed in 1948 to replace the earlier church on the site that burned in 1947. The new church incorporated several significant furnishings saved from the original church, including the carved altar and lectern and the bell.

Structured Assessment using Multiple Patient Scenarios (StAMPS) Preparation including Practice Scenarios 1. Preparing for the StAMPS assessment process The information provided in this first section is a ‘generic' discussion about the StAMPS assessment. The following sections provide some sample ‘practice' exams and discuss in finer detail what is relevant to the specific StAMPS examination. (NB at this stage there are only examples from the Primary Curriculum and Emergency Medicine examinations available). StAMPS is an assessment modality that is designed to test higher order functions in a highly contextualised framework where candidates have the opportunity to explain what they do and demonstrate their clinical reasoning for a given scenario, as opposed to simply providing evidence of knowledge, listing facts or recalling protocols. The methodology for this assessment has been extensively researched and found to be a high level tool; StAMPS has been accepted as such by the Australian Medical Council (AMC). StAMPS is essentially a ‘hybrid' between a viva voce and OSCE examination with the emphasis on the viva voce. Candidates are strongly advised to consider the relevant curriculum statements and prescribed reading list when preparing for the assessment, as well as familiarising themselves with the format of this assessment modality. The Primary Curriculum Assessment Blueprint provides a good guide as to which domain areas the StAMPS examination will focus on and is also of benefit for the AST StAMPs assessments.
