The Clark County Council is accepting applications for the Historical Promotion Grants Program from local organizations that encourage historic preservation and programs, including preservation of historic documents.

Applications, grant guidelines, and other information are available at www.clark.wa.gov/community-planning/historical-promotion-grants-program or email historicpreservation@clark.wa.gov.

Applicants must be either a nonprofit organization or public entity within the boundaries of Clark County that promotes local history. Applicants also must either operate or own a museum or similar historical institution or perform educative, interpretive, or similar activities.

The Historic Preservation Commission will review applications in the fall and submit recommendations to the county council in November. Grants will be awarded in December and grant funds will be available in January 2024.

The application deadline is 5 p.m. Sept. 15.
