Grant Description
Grants to Washington government agencies, businesses, individuals, and organizations to preserve historic city landmarks and properties in eligible locations. Applicants must contact program staff prior to applying. Funding is intended for projects focusing on the restoration and stabilization of historic building fabric, essential building system repairs or replacements, or the restoration of historically significant landscapes. Landmarks must be located in King County.

Large and small, urban and rural—the Landmarks Capital program supports the bricks-and-mortar projects that contribute to the region’s identity.

If you are the steward of a designated historic landmark property in King County and are working to rehabilitate it, you should consider applying for a Landmarks Capital grant. Projects that center on marginalized communities and that contribute to the diversity of property types and histories represented in King County’s built environment will receive additional consideration.

Property Eligibility: Your property must be designated as an official landmark at the city or county level or a historic building within a locally designated historic district. Properties listed in the National Register of Historic Places are eligible only in jurisdictions without a local historic preservation ordinance. Please contact 4Culture staff if you have questions about the eligibility of your property.

Project Eligibility:

  • Your project can include materials, labor, permits, and fees, as well as architectural design and engineering directly related to construction costs. Project management costs may be up to 15% of the award amount.
  • Your project should focus on the stabilization or restoration of historic building fabric, the repair or replacement of essential building systems, or the restoration of historically significant landscapes.


Additional Eligibility Criteria
4Culture accepts applications from individuals, businesses, organizations, and local governments that are either the owner or long-term leaseholder of a historic property in King County.

This grant is not available to K-12 schools or school districts.

Landmarks Capital funds may not be used for property acquisition, new additions, equipment purchases, planning and pre-development studies, general operating support, overhead costs, employee benefits, or any regular staff salaries.
