Apply for a historic preservation grant

The Pierce County Landmarks and Historic Preservation Commission will accept applications for the 2022 Preservation Grant Program through Sept. 28, 2021. These small yet meaningful grants support historic preservation and history-related project proposals throughout Pierce County.  

Application details 
Grant requests can be made for two types of proposals: 

  • Historic preservation: (maximum $35,000) for stabilization, restoration or rehabilitation of properties, buildings or structures listed on national, state and local historic registers.
  • History-related project proposals: (maximum request $15,000) for photograph or document preservation, history research, historic markers, and public events and programming promoting local history.

Owners of properties listed on historic registers, nonprofit organizations, public agencies, museums, historical societies and other community-based organizations are eligible to apply.  All applicants must provide matching funds. The project activity timeline is March 2022 through November 2022.

The commission will accept applications until 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 28, 2021. Applications will be evaluated by the commission, which administers the grant program. The commission then forwards project and funding recommendations to the Pierce County Council for approval.

Grant guidelines, the application form and virtual grant workshop information are available on the Pierce County Landmarks and Historic Preservation website.

The program is funded by HDOC (historic document) money. The funds come from the $1 recording fee collected by the county auditor for each document recorded, per RCW 36.22.170 as appropriated by the Pierce County Council.
