King County Historic Preservation
Application deadline: 4/21/2017

King County’s Historic Preservation Program has announced the second of two rounds of this program which is meant to provide funds for the stabilization and rehabilitation of historic barns and outbuildings that are historically associated with the working life of a farm, as well as community gathering places associated with agricultural organizations, such as grange halls.

In 2017, up to $250,000 will be awarded. To be eligible for funding, buildings must be over 40 years old, located in King County, in need of substantial repair, and still ocnvey their historic character. Grant awards are anticipated to be in the range of $5,000 – $50,000 for projects that extend the life of the building and retain historic features. Eligible projects include repairs to roofs, foundations, walls, structural frameworks and building systems.

Grant guidelines and application forms can be found here. For more information about this program, please contact Todd Scott, King County’s Preservation Architect, at todd.scott@kingcounty.gov or 206-477-4545.
