Heritage Capital Projects

Since 1997, the Washington State Historical Society has administered nearly $80 million in Heritage Capital Projects (HCP).  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 late spring of each even-numbered year.
