State of Washington
Applications due: 5/16/2012
The State of Washington has affirmed that Washington has a “rich heritage in historical sites and artifacts that have the potential to provide life-long learning opportunities for citizens of the state” and that “many of these historical treasures are not readily accessible to citizens, and that there is a need to create an ongoing program to support the capital needs of heritage organizations and facilities.”
To meet this need, the Heritage Capital Projects Fund (HCPF) competitive grant program was authorized in 1995 to support capital needs and facilities of heritage organizations, tribal governments, public development authorities, and local government agencies that interpret and preserve Washington’s history and heritage. Projects need to have a minimum total budget of $25,000; request a grant of not more than $1,000,000; involve property that will be held a minimum of 13 years; and provide a $2 match for each $1 of HCPF grant funds.
