The Trust Board of Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve has announced a new cycle of Ebey’s Forever Grants.

Applications are available on the Reserve website and must be received by 5 p.m., Feb. 25.

If you own an historic building within Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve, the matching grants are intended to encourage preservation and help offset the cost.

For information or assistance in applying, contact the Trust Board office at 360-0678-6084, or email to carol_castellano@partner.nps.gov

Ebey’s Forever Grants are entirely funded through donations to the nonprofit organization Friends of Ebey’s Reserve.

More than 60 historic structures have been given new life since the program’s inception in 2011.

Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve was established in 1978 to protect a rural community and its significant history. Preservation is accomplished through partnerships, conservation easements, local land use regulation and the cooperation of land owners. `
