Call for Nominations - National Trust/ACHP Federal Partnership Award

The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation and the National Trust for Historic Preservation announce the call for nominations for the 2011 National Trust/ACHP Award for Federal Partnerships in Historic Preservation. Established in 2002, this joint award honors outstanding federal partnerships that advance the preservation of important historic resources.

Federal activities have a profound impact on our nation’s cultural landscape. This national awards program provides an opportunity to showcase an agency’s commitment to a preservation ethic and gain public awareness of its accomplishments.

This award requires a demonstrated partnership with a federal organization. Partners may include Indian tribes and Native Hawaiian organizations, not-for-profit organizations, individuals, businesses, state and local governments, and other non-federal persons or organizations. Nominated projects or programs can include one or more non-federal partners and more than one federal agency.

The deadline for nominations is February 17, 2011.

Beginning this year, the nomination form must be completed and submitted electronically. Please fully read the general eligibility and nomination requirements, and especially the award description for the National Trust/ACHP award before submitting.

Please share this information as widely and quickly as possible. For more information contact Patricia Knoll, ACHP Awards Coordinator, at 202-606-1385 or pknoll@achp.gov.
