Vancouver, WA – The Board of County Commissioners awards grants to encourage local historical preservation efforts and programs, and applications for 2014 grants now are being accepted by the Historical Promotion Grants Advisory Committee.

Deadline to submit an application is 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 13, 2013.

Clark County established the Historical Promotion Grants Program to increase awareness and education among local residents and better preserve, exhibit and interpret historical collections. Grants typically 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 2014.

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

Applications are available online 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:
