Historic Cemetery Grants Program

Washington Trust for Historic Preservation
Deadline: 10/31/2023

The Historic Cemetery Grant Program is generously supported by funding from the Washington State Legislature. The grant program is housed within the Washington State Department of Archaeology & Historic Preservation (DAHP) and managed under contract by the Washington Trust.

Established in 2016 with the enactment of House Bill 2637, the Historic Cemetery Preservation Capital Grant Program is intended to benefit the public by preserving outstanding examples of the state’s historical heritage, enabling historic cemeteries to continue to serve their communities, and honoring the military veterans buried within them. Any cemetery within the state of Washington that contains five or more burials, with at least one burial more than 50 years old, is eligible for this grant program.

If you’re interested in learning more about this program, there will be two Office Hours sessions: Wednesday, September 20 from 5-6:30 PM, and Wednesday, October 11 from 5-6:30 PM. Attendance is free, but registration is required.
