Grants of up to $30,000 to Washington local agencies, businesses, individuals, and organizations to preserve official historic city landmarks in eligible areas. Funding is intended for projects focusing on the restoration and stabilization of historic building fabric, essential building system repairs or replacements, or the restoration of historically significant landscapes. Landmarks must be located in King County.

This year, the Landmarks Capital program is running to support urgent needs, including emergency repairs and projects that can’t wait. It will prioritize projects that prevent further damage or disrepair to historic properties, or address life safety issues. If you have projects that are not time-sensitive, please consider waiting to apply next year.

For this particular grant, 4Culture will look to see how well your project shows the following:

  • Quality: You have a long-term, sustainable plan for the landmark, and your project follows good preservation principles, as outlined in the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation.
  • Public Benefit: Your project will benefit the citizens of King County through the property’s visibility, accessibility, public programming, or economic impact; will contribute to the diversity of property types and histories represented in King County’s built environment; or will aid in the long-term preservation and use of the landmark.
  • Feasibility: You’re ready to begin the project within a year, with a qualified team, realistic budget, and credible cost estimates from experienced contractors, and you are able to complete the project on a reimbursement basis.
  • Urgency: Your project will prevent further damage or disrepair to the property or will address critical life safety issues. The project is time-sensitive and cannot wait.
  • Additional priorities: Your project is not eligible for other 4Culture funding programs. We’ll prioritize applications from under-represented geographic areas or historically marginalized communities if the above criteria are met.
