The Permits Protect consumer awareness project was a collaborative effort between the state, local government and the construction industry starting in 2001. The original planning group came up with the Permits Protect concept and built a campaign around the name, Permits Protect - Protecting the Safety and Value of Your Home.

In the interim Permits Protect has produced a logo, radio ads, TV PSAs, brochures, fliers, Home and Garden tradeshow presence, a web site, free media campaign and personal appearances. The target audience for this campaign has been homeowners, do-it-yourselfers and homeowners contemplating a remodeling project.

In 2003, legislation passed in Oregon which requires homeowners selling their property to show proof to potential buyers that work done on the property was correctly permitted. This underscored the need for consumers to have a better understanding of the importance of acquiring building permits in Oregon.
