4Culture’s Landmark Challenge Grants provide strategic assistance countywide for “bricks and mortar” projects involving highly significant historic properties. These properties are buildings, structures, sites, objects, and districts that have been officially designated as landmarks for their contributions to the diverse heritage of King County and its communities. The goals of the Landmark Challenge Grants program are to address critical physical needs, to spur momentum toward achievable preservation goals, and to visibly demonstrate the value of historic preservation to the community. For more information about this important grant program, go to 4Culture’s website. The deadline for submitting a Landmark Challenge Grant is July 14, 2010.
