accepting grant applications

County’s heritage program accepting grant applications


Snohomish County’s Community Heritage Program is currently accepting
applications from public and nonprofit agencies for projects that develop
and promote heritage preservation in the county.

By providing matching funds on a competitive basis, the Community Heritage
Program supports projects that promote the public’s access to county
history. Funding is available for professional development, public
education, capital improvements or collections enhancement.
Money is awarded from recording fees collected by the Snohomish County
Auditor’s Office. The allocation of these fees for projects that “promote
historical preservation or historical programs, which may include
preservation of historic documents” is authorized under state law. The
revenues accrue to a dedicated fund and may not be used for any purposes
other than those stipulated in the RCW.

As has been done in the past, the Snohomish County Historic Preservation
Commission will review applications and make recommendations to Snohomish
County Executive Aaron Reardon and the County Council for final approval.

Previous awards have been used to create a cyber tour of heritage landmarks
across Snohomish County, to collect oral histories of Snohomish County
citizens for an audio anthology, to purchase archival materials to properly
store museum collections and to expand the Western Heritage Center.

Funds will be available in June and will be awarded on a competitive basis
to applicants who can complete their proposed projects by Dec. 15, 2011.
Funds are reimbursed for approved project costs only. Historically, project
allocations have averaged about $3,500.

Eligibility details and program requirements are included in the application
package, which must be filled out and returned to the Snohomish County
Office of Economic Development by 5 p.m. Monday, April 4. Applications
received after that time and date will not be considered.

Applications are available at www.snoco.org/County_Services/HistoricCultural
or by contacting the
Office of Economic Development at 3000 Rockefeller
Avenue, M/S #411, Everett, WA, 98201. For more information on the program,
contact Wendy Becker at 425-388-3186 or *wendy.becker at snoco.org*.--
