FINAL CALL FOR 2021 FRA AWARD ENTRIES!

FRA is grateful for those who were able to submit a 2021 FRA Award entry, but we decided to extend this year's deadline to give many of you extra time to submit one or more entries. 

The Florida Redevelopment Awards program recognizes the best in redevelopment in Florida and is open to any member of the association.

This is your final chance to submit a 2021 entry! You don't want to miss out on this opportunity. 

Visit the 2021 FRA Awards page for information on this year's program as well as to complete the entry form.
TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL "BEST BOOK" ENTRY
Are you preparing your award materials and need to know what kind of submission makes for a winner?

Here are some helpful tips to help guide your award entries:

1) Provide examples. Submit information that tells the whole story of your project (increases in property values, retail sales numbers, grants/donations/funds that helped you to succeed).

2) Provide photos. Photos are preferred over copies of studies or written reports. The goal is to balance the information you provide with the brevity of your work. Before and after photos are required.

3) Remember the committee knows nothing of your project. Make sure your narrative, PowerPoint and pictures explain your project and the positive impact it had or will have on your CRA/City.
