The application window for the 2018 FRA Awards is now open!

The FRA Redevelopment Awards is a statewide program that honors the hard work and dedication of individuals, communities and professionals striving to make our state a better place. From annual reports and planning studies to new building projects and beautification, the awards program has a variety of categories that your CRA can enter and win.

Each year, we receive numerous entries and our judges base their decisions on the effectiveness and completeness of the entry, the narrative and compliance with the submittal instructions. A winning entry is an acknowledgement of excellence for the work of an organization. Once all entries are in the online system, a cross section of Florida redevelopment professionals are responsible for evaluating, ranking and selecting winners. Winners are not announced until the annual awards ceremony during each FRA Annual Conference.

This year, winners will be announced at the Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort & Spa during the 2018 annual conference on October 25, 2018.

The deadline to enter is July 13. To submit an entry, click here.

Applications will be accepted from any FRA member who meets the award criteria and submits the $150 entry fee.
