The award will recognize agencies, developers, and organizations that advanced the goals of historic preservation while providing affordable housing or expanding economic opportunities for low- and moderate-income households.

  • Include HUD funds, financing, or other assistance.

  • Meet preservation guidelines.

  • Contribute to local and/or tribal community revitalization efforts.

Submissions are required to meet the preservation guidelines of the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation and must have undergone Section 106 review. Additional information, and a full list of nomination requirements, is available in the award brochure.

Nominations must be completed electronically and submitted with supporting materials following the instructions provided here. All nominations are due by 11:59 pm PDT on August 15, 2022.
