Washington Trust for Historic Preservation
Heritage Barns and Historic Cemetary Grant
Funding for two state grant programs is available for owners of historic barns and for those with stewardship responsibilities over historic cemeteries in Washington State.
This marks the seventh round of grant funding through the Heritage Barn Initiative. The Initiative established the Heritage Barn Register in 2007, a statewide list of historically significant barns, and owners of designated Heritage Barns are once again eligible to apply for matching grants available to assist with barn stabilization and rehabilitation projects. Now in its second year, the Historic Cemetery Preservation Program is intended to honor veterans and support the ongoing preservation of historic cemeteries through funding for capital projects. Approximately $900,000 is available to be granted through both programs; $450,000 for each. Both initiatives are programs of the Washington State Department of Archaeology & Historic Preservation (DAHP).
The Washington Trust for Historic Preservation administers both grant programs for DAHP and will be hosting free workshops throughout the state for anyone wishing to learn more about both the Heritage Barn Preservation Initiative and the Historic Cemetery Preservation Program.
