Dear Neighborhood Partner,
The Historic Districts Council is happy to call for applications for the 2014 Six to Celebrate.
The purpose of this program is to provide strategic resources to neighborhood groups at a critical moment so that they can reach their preservation goals. The program will help community activists learn to use tools such as documentation, research, zoning, landmarking, publicity, and public outreach to advance local preservation campaigns. The selected groups will receive HDC’s hands-on help strategizing and implementing all aspects of their efforts over the course of the 2014 calendar year as well as our continued support in the years to come.
Since beginning this program in 2011, HDC has been able to help Six to Celebrate groups create two new National Register districts (the Bowery and Far Rockaway Bungalows) and two New York City historic districts (Bedford Stuyvesant and the East Village) with many others still in the works in all five boroughs (Bedford, Gowanus, Harrison Street, Port Morris, and Van Cortland Village). We have also assisted in leveraging more than $40,000 in private and public grants for these community-driven projects. Neighborhood selected also get professionally-designed websites and illustrated walking tour brochures.
Above is a link to a PDF of the nomination form. You can also find the form on our website http://hdc.org/program-events/six-to-celebrate/six-to-celebrate-2014/application or, if you would like, we will mail you one (just call 212-614-9107 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org). Deadline for nominations is November 1, 2013, and the “Six to Celebrate” will be announced in early 2014.
Finally, don’t worry – we’re not going away. HDC will continue to assist all our neighborhood partners in their efforts.
