Beginning in 2013, Heritage Cultural Education will be merged with Heritage Special Projects, to form one funding program called Heritage Projects. For applicants, the change means that they may only submit one application to the combined program. But, it also means that the definition of cultural education has been expanded to include lifelong learners in addition to K-12 students.

As in the past, Heritage Projects will be open to individuals and organizations for support of innovative proposals to document and interpret the history of King County. If that proposal is for developing curriculum, recording oral histories, or creating a documentary, Heritage Projects is the 4Culture program to submit an application for potential funding. For more information, and access to program guidelines, go to Heritage Projects.
