Triangle Building & Housing Corporation Property Improvement Contest



Thank you for your interest in submitting a grant proposal for the Triangle Building and Housing Corporations Property Improvement Contest! To enter your proposal, follow the instructions below. All proposals will be considered at the next regular monthly meeting of the Property Improvement Contest Committee. For 2018-19, the maximum individual grant award is $1,000. There is $10,000 available for all grants.

All proposals will be considered against the following criteria:

  1. We encourage alumni participation. Points will be awarded for including alumni, with maximum points for 4+ alumni participating in the project.
  2. We encourage chapter members to be involved. Maximum points are awarded for 90% of the chapter being involved in the project.
  3. We encourage members to take a hands-on role in projects whenever feasible. Maximum points are awarded for no third parties completing the work.
  4. We believe that while functionality is important, so too are project appearances. Points will be awarded for aesthetic value.
  5. We encourage the improvement of things that will impact the most people. Points are awarded for improving or adding items that are significantly used. For example, a common room improvement for a chapter house will earn more points than a single bedroom.
  6. We encourage chapters to improve safety and well-being. Points will be awarded for projects that may have a positive effect on safety or on insurance rates.
  7. We all strive to make the world a better place. Points will be awarded for improvements that impact the greater community beyond the chapter.
  8. All project proposals will also be evaluated for their overall organization and “wow” factor.
