National Trust for Historic Preservation Awards Eppard Vision’s APT Program

Bellingham, Washington (April 30, 2010)–Eppard Vision’s Applied Preservation Technologies (APT) Program was awarded a $2,500 grant by the National Trust for Historic Preservation from the Pacific Eldridge Campbell Stockton Memorial Preservation Fund. The seed grant funds will be used to sponsor keynote speaker expenses for the 3rd Annual Cultural Resource Planning Summit to be held June 7th and 8th at the Suquamish Tribe’s Kiana Lodge near Poulsbo, WA.   The primary goal of the Summit is to facilitate amongst all affected parties an open, frank discussion about the intersection between cultural resources and land use. The Summit is designed to promote collaborative cultural resource planning as an effective means of finding resolution to issues before they escalate into emotionally-charged, divisive, and expensive stalemates or law suits.    

In announcing the grant, National Trust for Historic Preservation President Richard Moe said,  “With these funds, Eppard Vision’s APT Program joins the National Trust for Historic Preservation and hundreds of other communities and organizations across the country actively working to protect and preserve the important places that tell the story of America.”    

The National Trust for Historic Preservation dispenses small grants for local projects through the National Trust Preservation Funds grant program. The grants range from $500 to $5,000 and have provided over $5.5 million dollars of funding since 2002. They are awarded to nonprofit groups, educational institutions, and public agencies and must be matched at least dollar for dollar with public or private funds. Preservation Funds grants are beings used nationally for such wide-ranging activities as consultant services for rehabilitating buildings, technical assistance for tourism that promotes historic resources, and educating children about their heritage. These grants are often the deciding factor on whether historic buildings or sites can be saved for future generations.
