4Culture’s Preservation Special Projects program was created in 2013 to offer pre-planning opportunities for traditional “bricks & mortar” restoration projects funded under our long-running preservation capital programs. Since then, Preservation’s Special Projects program has helped support structural & architectural assessments, preservation plans for historic properties, landmark nominations, public events honoring community landmarks, and neighborhood surveys. The program seeks to support investigative studies, planning and educational projects focused on the preservation of the built environment – while encouraging projects that highlight historic places in innovative ways.

Thinking of a project that may fit? Visit the program page for more information on how to apply, workshops & FAQs, past grantees and what to expect if you receive funding. Still have questions? Contact Brandi Link, Program Manager, at (206) 263-1593 or Brandi Link. The application period is open now, and applications are due Wednesday, February 25th, 2015 at 5PM. Eligible applicants are individuals who live in King County, or King County-based organizations and public agencies with projects that meet program criteria and seek to engage new audiences to historic preservation.

This opportunity will be open through the end of February, and can be accessed anytime through the program’s webpage or www.4culture.org in the “Upcoming Deadlines” box.
