Update From Lopez Island Grange - WA State Heritage Capital Projects Grant
Jan 17, 2021
Thank you for your continued support of Lopez Island Grange #1060! We want to give you an update on our WA State Heritage Capital Projects Grant. The Washington Heritage Capital Project Coalition was formed by the 36 organizations that are undertaking projects recommended for funding by the grant review panel for the Washington State Heritage Capital Projects Fund. We are working together to help ensure that the $9.161 million in capital funds that are recommended to support these projects make it into the 2021-23 state budget. Governor Inslee recommended fully funding the Heritage Capital Grant list in his proposed capital budget. The WA state legislature is now back in session and will be voting soon. Members from the Heritage Coalition will be presenting to the Heritage Caucus, meeting with legislators from the Senate Ways and Means and House Capital Budget Committees on behalf of the Coalition.


How can you help? Please contact our legislators in the 40th District: Representatives Alex Ramel and Debra Lekanoff, and Senator Liz Lovelett, and let them know the importance of preserving the Lopez Island Grange for our community and that you support funding our project and others in the coalition.

Approval of the budget is the first step. As this is a 2-1 matching grant, this next year we will be applying for additional grants and outreaching to the local community through a variety of fundraising initiatives to meet the total costs of our project ~
