Snohomish County-based nonprofit cultural organizations and public agencies that provide heritage services to the public are eligible to apply. All proposed projects must have a clear heritage focus that relates to an aspect of Snohomish County history.
Additional eligibility criteria:
All projects must demonstrate a clearly defined public benefit.
Priority may be given to projects that do not already receive funding from the Historic Preservation surcharge.
Proposals must have a clearly defined product and include a strategy for objectively measuring the success of the project at its conclusion.
Project budgets must establish how any grant, plus cash or in-kind match, will suffice for project completion.
Operating costs (staff, utilities, rent, etc.) are not eligible for funding.
While not a requirement, it will be considered favorably when sponsors recognize the economic development potential of local history and include active coordination with the county’s tourism industry in their project work plans.
GRANT SUBMITTAL RULES
You must complete all section of the application, or your proposal will not be considered for funding.
We consider the definition of an historic “asset” to include artifacts, sites, structures, buildings, or sets of information whose preservation will benefit the historical insight, interpretation, or education of our citizens and/or county visitors.
An organization may submit a maximum of two “small grant” proposals and one “large grant” proposal.
Any organization submitting more than one proposal should prioritize their own choice(s), to help guide our final recommendation.
While no financial or in-kind “match” is required, any commitment to a “match” will improve the competitiveness of that grant proposal.
