Grants to Washington organizations and individuals for the preservation and restoration of historically significant buildings. Applicants are encouraged to contact program staff prior to applying. Properties eligible for nomination include those that exhibit a degree of neglect, a threat of rezoning or redevelopment, proposed demolition, or other environmental or human factor.

If the property is selected for inclusion in the Most Endangered Historic Properties List, nominators agree to work with the Washington Trust to develop advocacy strategies, provide regular updates to staff and site representatives, submit articles for newsletter consideration, and generally engage in efforts to find a positive preservation outcome for the resource.

Properties selected for the Most Endangered Historic Properties List will receive the Trust's assistance in developing support to remove the threat.

Nominations may be submitted by organizations and property owners.

Eligibility Criteria:

-There must be a degree of endangerment by owner neglect, proposed demolition, rezoning, or redevelopment, and/or other human or environmental factors.

-The property must be listed on or eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places, the Washington Heritage Register, or a local register.

-There must be evidence of local support (or the clear potential for building local support) for preservation of the property.

-A separate application form must be submitted for each nominated property.

-Selections will be made based on their significance as determined by the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation and not solely on the degree of endangerment.

-Properties selected for the Most Endangered Historic Properties List will receive the Trust's assistance in developing support to remove the threat.

All nominators are strongly encouraged to contact the Washington Trust office prior to submitting a nomination to discuss the program requirements, nomination criteria, and over-arching goals for the threatened resource.

Nominations to the Most Endangered program are accepted year-round. However, in order to ensure that the property you nominate is included in the 2017 Most Endangered video announcement at Revitalize WA, submit your nomination by Wednesday, January 11, 2017 at 5:00 PM.
