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
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.
Pacific Northwest History Conference
The Pacific Northwest History Conference is a forum for exchange among historians, scholars from other disciplines, museum professionals, educators, archivists, historic preservationists, graduate students, history enthusiasts, and community activists.
