A series of drop-in workshops for 4Culture’s new Landmarks Capital program began this week at the Kent Library. Workshops will continue at various locations through April 24, leading up the application deadline on May 8, 2013.

Landmarks Capital supports “bricks and mortar” projects that help preserve designated local landmarks all around King County. We fund design, materials, and labor for rehabilitation projects large and small.

We encourage you to attend a free workshop prior to submitting your application, especially if you’re a first-time applicant! You’ll get an opportunity to ask questions, understand specific guidelines, and be taken through a step-by-step review of the application process.
