HUD Accepting Nominations for Outstanding Historic Preservation Work

Preservation professionals and their projects in Oregon have an opportunity to receive recognition for important efforts in historic preservation benefitting people with low incomes. HUD recently announced a submission period for the 2011 HUD Secretary’s Award for Excellence in Historic Preservation. The annual award, presented in partnership with the National Trust for Historic Preservation, recognizes exemplary work within the past three years. Specific projects, agencies, individuals, and organizations are all eligible for nomination. Use of HUD funding or historic preservation tax credits is not explicitly required.

Interested parties have until February 17 to nominate and submit. Click here for the nomination form, here for HUD’s application, and here for some background and info on previous recipients (congrats to Umpqua CDC for winning the award in 2005). The submission process is not extensive and the nomination fee is $30.
