Now in its 12th year, Six to Celebrate is the New York City Historic Districts Council’s (HDC) annual program of preservation priorities. As part of the program HDC supports six chosen recipients in their historic preservation goals throughout the year and beyond.
Support includes expertise and guidance on an advocacy campaign, help on communicating their message, planning of walking tours and other programs promoting the community, and a reimbursable grant of up to $1,000 to support preservation-related activities.
Since the program’s inception in 2011, HDC has helped create 4 National Register districts, 36 New York City Individual Landmarks, 9 New York City historic districts, a contextual down-zoning to maintain neighborhood scale and character, and 19 neighborhood surveys, resulting in the documentation of thousands of buildings in all five boroughs. In addition, HDC has also assisted in leveraging over $115,000 in private and public grants for these community-driven projects.
The deadline to apply is December 31st, 2022. For more information or to apply, call (212) 614-9107, email Diego Robayo at firstname.lastname@example.org, or click here.
