Diversity in Local History
The Washington State Historical Society is excited to announce the new Diversity in Local History Grant. This program will award small grants to heritage organizations to fund paid internships that support diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives.
COVID-19 Resources for Museums
We know that things are changing quickly and current public health and economic circumstances may be profoundly impacting your museum. We have created a resource page with information related to the concerns we have heard from colleagues across the state. We will be updating this page frequently so please check back often.
Heritage Capital Projects
The Heritage Capital Projects (HCP) grant is for capital projects that provide public access to history. HCP was created by the Washington State Legislature in 1995 and operates on a two-year (biennium) cycle. Applications for funding in the 2023-2025 state budget are anticipated to open in February 2022.
