Apply for a landmarks preservation grant by June 10

The Pierce County Landmarks and Historic Preservation Commission is pleased to announce the 2017 Preservation Grant Program, which assists in funding preservation efforts in Pierce County.

Grant requests can be made for historic preservation or history-related project proposals. For stabilization, restoration, or rehabilitation of Certified Local Government (CLG) register-listed buildings or structures, the maximum request is $15,000. For photographic/document preservation, historic markers, history research, and public events/programming, the maximum request is $5,000. All applicants must provide funds matching the grant request.

Nonprofit organizations, public agencies, and owners of property listed on local historic registers are eligible to apply.

The grant guidelines and application form are available on the Pierce County Landmarks and Historic Preservation website. Applications will be accepted until 3 p.m. on June 10, 2016. The project activity timeline will be January 1, 2017 through November 10, 2017.

The program is funded by HDOC (historic document) money, derived from the $1 recording fee, as appropriated by the Pierce County Council.
