The Preservation Alliance of West Virginia (PAWV) will be establishing a historic preservation revolving loan fund to support historic preservation projects in the state of West Virginia. To meet that goal, PAWV plans to engage professional services of a consultant (firm) who is an expert in the disciplines of revolving fund mechanisms, real estate development, and historic preservation. The successful proposer will work closely with a PAWV committee to develop Operating Guidelines and materials for the new revolving loan fund.
Formed in 1982, the Preservation Alliance of West Virginia (PAWV) is the only statewide, grassroots, nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of the Mountain State’s cultural heritage. PAWV’s formal mission is, “With a commitment to preserve our unique cultural heritage, PAWV and its members work to save our past for the present and future, supporting and promoting historic preservation through education & outreach, advocacy, preservation tools, and heritage tourism.”
In 2016, PAWV retained Terrell Ellis & Associates (TEA) to examine the feasibility of establishing a historic preservation revolving loan fund to protect historic properties in West Virginia, and, if determined feasible, to make recommendations on the structure and management of the program.
Through this process, TEA recommended PAWV move forward with the development of the loan program with the following parameters, which are summarized below. (The full feasibility study and recommendations explained in detail are available upon request.)
Proposal must be date- and time-stamped by 5:00 p.m. EST on Friday, June 2, 2017.
