2023 Pierce County Historic Preservation Grant Program accepting applications

The 2023 Pierce County Historic Preservation Grant Program, which assists in funding preservation efforts in Pierce County, is now accepting applications through Oct. 4, 2022.

Grant requests can be made for historic preservation or history-related project proposals. For stabilization, restoration, or rehabilitation of buildings or structures, the maximum grant request is $35,000 for owners of national, state, and local register-listed properties. For photographic/document preservation, history research, historic markers, and public events/programming promoting local history, the maximum request is $15,000.

Nonprofit organizations, public agencies, museums, historical societies and other community-based organizations are eligible to apply. All applicants must provide funds matching the grant request. The Landmarks and Historic Preservation Commission (LHPC) will accept applications until 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2022.

The Pierce County Historic Preservation Grant Program is funded by HDOC (historic document) money, per RCW 36.22.170, and appropriated by the Pierce County Council.

Projects recommended by the LHPC are subject to review and approval by the County Council, expected in March 2023 with contracts concluding December 2023. The grant guidelines and application form are available on the Pierce County Landmarks and Historic Preservation website.
