Historic Theatre Grants

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

The Historic Theater Grant Program, established in 2021, is funded by the Washington State Legislature and seeks to support the conservation of historic theaters that have played a pivotal role in shaping the arts and cultural landscape of Washington, particularly given theaters’ financial difficulties and deferred maintenance during the pandemic. Grants will be awarded to successful applicants to aid in the maintenance, repair, and revitalization of these cherished community gathering spaces, with a record $500,000 to be distributed.

This grant program is administered by the nonprofit Washington Trust for Historic Preservation, under contract to the state’s Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation. Applicants are encouraged to review the eligibility criteria, program guidelines, and application workshop recordings available on the Washington Trust’s website at preservewa.org/grants.
