June 17, 2009. House Bill 1386 Grant Program

Councilman Brian Sullivan, Donna Ambrose, Sharie Freemantle and Wendy Becker made a presentation to the Historic Preservation Commission Wednesday evening June 16th creating the House Bill 1386 Heritage Grant Program. Councilman Sullivan made it clear that this program would not have been possible in these tough economic times without the help of all the council members and the executive’s office who came together to support this plan.

If the link to the application and guidelines at the bottom of this message doesn’t work, try www.snoco.org front page under “Community Heritage Program.”

There is $45,000 in this fund for this calendar year and we would really like to see this all distributed to support heritage in Snohomish County. There is a ¼ cash match required and a ¼ in-kind match. For this year, the timing is tight. Applications are due by August 10, 2009 for expenditure by December 31, 2009. Next year the cycle will operate on the calendar year.

There is a provision for smaller grants that can be applied for via a letter application.

The application guidelines are not yet up on the web site, so we’ll provide more information later. Any questions can be addressed to Shari Freemantle at 425-388-3559 or sharie.freemantle@snoco.org or Wendy Becker at 425-388-3186 or wendy.becker@snoco.org.

  1. For the Heritage grant due Monday, August 10th at 5pm, what is the donation rate for volunteers
    time. Is it OK to estimate rate similar to the City of Everett grant rate of $19/hr?

    Are there any other guidelines written or available besides the grant application PDF on the County’s web site?

    AND is it true that it is not suppose to be 50% grant from County, 50% in-kind from
    applicant? That, actually 1/4 is cash from applicant and 1/4 is only in-kind?
