Landmarks Capital Grant Open Now

Milk Shed at Dougherty Farmstead in Duvall, 2016 Landmarks Capital Recipient.

Do you own a historic landmark in King County that could use some TLC? If so, don’t miss this opportunity to apply for funds to repair or restore its historic character. Through our Landmarks Capital grant, we fund design, materials, and labor for rehabilitation projects large and small.

Applications are due Wednesday, May 10, 2017 at 5:00 pm. Make sure to read the grant guidelines carefully before starting your application. We also strongly recommend scheduling a site visit with Preservation Lead, Dana Phelan prior to applying—you can reach her by email or by phone at (206) 263-1604.

It also helps to attend one of our workshops! Get your questions answered by Dana as you prepare to apply. These workshops are drop-in and informal; no need to register or RSVP. The schedule is as follows:
