Heritage Capital Projects Fund
Since 1997, the Washington State Historical Society has administered nearly $80 million in Heritage Capital Projects (HCP) grants. Grant funds have been used to build museums, restore historic structures, and interpret and preserve the heritage of the state. These grant projects enhance local economies through job creation and purchasing while adding to the unique character of Washington's varied towns and cities. Recipients of HCP grants need to provide two dollars of match for each dollar of state funding. The deadline for submission is in early May of each even-numbered year.
Our monthly Washington State Heritage e-Bulletin provides a compendium of information of particular interest to the heritage community. Sign-up to receive the e-bulletin today!
The Heritage Caucus meets regularly while the Washington State Legislature is in session to discuss heritage, arts, and other cultural and recreational issues. Organized in 1990, the Caucus is a bipartisan gathering of state legislators and other elected officials; staff from state heritage, arts, and cultural agencies, and nonprofit organizations; and citizens interested in supporting Washington’s cultural, heritage and the arts. The Heritage Caucus is co-chaired by Sen. Jim Honeyford (R-15th) and Rep. Steve Tharinger (D-24th), and co-staffed by the Washington State Historical Society and the Washington State Arts Commission.
