Historic Preservation Tuesday: Preservation Maryland announces new technical assistance program, Six to Fix, looks for nominations
Preservation Maryland is excited to debut a brand new program to help save threatened history across the state: Preservation Maryland's Six-To-Fix.
Rather than creating lists of threatened buildings, we’re ready to do something about it.
An online nomination process for organizations, individuals and local governments interested in “fixing” or preserving a threatened historic resource is now open at Six-To-Fix!
The program will be open to all varieties of historic resources. The nominating organization must be willing to participate in the project as a team leader and to help be part of the fix.
The six sites selected will receive a tailored package of support from Preservation Maryland, which will likely include:
Nominations will be accepted through July 20, 2015.
- Seed funding
- Professional, technical assistance
- Partnership building assistance
- Organizational capacity building assistance
- Inclusion in a statewide publicity campaign

Don’t have a site to nominate but still want to get involved?
There’s still a big role for you to play. Individuals are encouraged to sign-up to become a Six-To-Fix volunteer!
Individuals with preservation as well as business skills can easily list themselves with us as being interested in getting involved & volunteering with the program.
We need architects, engineers, attorneys, business leaders, writers, artists, & more! These individuals will be the beginning of a new Corps of Volunteers that we know will make this program a success. No matter your skill - we will find a job for you!
