Vancouver, WA – The Board of County Commissioners awards grants to encourage local historical preservation efforts and programs, and applications for 2013 grants are now being accepted by the Historical Promotion Grants Advisory Committee.

Deadline to submit a grant application is 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 14, 2012.

Clark County established the Historical Promotion Grants Program to increase awareness and education among local residents as well as better preserve, exhibit and interpret historical collections. Typical grants range from $3,000 to $15,000, although applicants may request more.

The advisory committee will review applications and submit recommendations to the Board in November. Grants will be awarded in December and money will become available in January 2013.

The program is paid for by a state surcharge of $1 per document recorded with the county.

Applications are available online at or by contacting Axel Swanson in the Commissioners' Office at (360) 397-2232 or

Completed applications must include an original signature, so electronic copies cannot be accepted. Applications may be delivered to the Commissioners’ Office on the sixth floor of the Public Service Center, 1300 Franklin St. or mailed to:
