STEP 1 - Read all of the above sections
STEP 2 - Gather and prepare your information
You are required to submit your proposal using 4Culture’s online application. The online application will include narrative questions, a project budget, and your evaluation of preservation priorities for the landmark. You must complete the application in full for it to be submitted to the panel for review.
Please answer all narrative questions as thoroughly and completely as possible. Complete the project budget to the best of your ability, noting amounts of all expenses and income associated with the project. Show how the proposed project fits with your overall preservation priorities for the landmark, taking note of work that has already been completed and any plans to address additional capital needs in the future.
Below, you will find information on additional required and optional support materials. At the end of this section, a link is provided to the online application.
Contractor Estimate (Required upload)
At least one contractor bid or architectural estimate for the proposed project is required. You can include a second estimate if you have one.
Images (Required upload)
Submit 6 to 12 current (taken within last 6 months) digital color images (.jpg format preferred), no larger than 2 MB in size each. Please submit a list of all images, with a brief caption for each, in the online application. Include the following photos of the landmark:
- In its setting or neighborhood context
- Each side of exterior of primary structure
- Features (exterior or interior) affected by proposed project
Additional Support Materials (Optional)
You may submit letters of support; any existing master plans, studies, or assessments; or any existing site plans, drawings, or sketches that directly support your project. Optional support materials may be uploaded within the online application. Carefully read the upload requirements within the application for the different types of materials you choose to submit. Be selective, these are optional! We will not accept any printed materials, and you many not upload more than there is space available.
Application materials will not be accepted by email or after the deadline.
