4Culture announces grant opportunities for preservation capital projects in King County:

Historic buildings, sites, neighborhoods, and landscapes lie at the heart of every community’s identity. The preservation of historic places conserves resources and embodied energy, boosts the economy, and improves our overall quality of life.

4Culture’s Landmarks Capital program supports “bricks and mortar” projects that help preserve designated local landmarks all around King County. We fund design, materials, and labor for rehabilitation projects large and small. Eligible applicants include private owners, businesses, organizations and local governments. Fundable projects will range from $3,000 to $30,000. Deadline to apply is May 8, 2013. 

A portion of Lodging Tax revenues collected in King County provides all of the funding for this program.

Note: the Landmarks Capital program replaces both the Landmarks Rehab program and Landmarks Challenge Grants of previous years. There is no required cash match for the new Landmarks Capital program.
