Preserving Heritage Barns
The Heritage Barn 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. Barns must be listed on the Heritage Barn Register to be eligible to apply for a rehabilitation grant. Please contact Michael Houser or visit the DAHP website for more information about the Heritage Barn Register.
Since 2007, the legislature has allocated funding to provide owners of designated Heritage Barns with matching grants for the purpose of assisting with barn rehabilitation projects. Understanding that Heritage Barns constitute a public good in economic, social and historic terms, the program provides owners of designated Heritage Barns (or barns listed in the National Register of Historic Places or the Washington Heritage Register) grants to assist with stabilization and rehabilitation projects designed for the long-term care and preservation of listed structures.
