Black Heritage Sites Survey (RFP) - DAHP Soliciting Consultant Services
The Washington State Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation (DAHP) is pleased to announce an open competitive process to select a contractor to identify and survey historic sites in the State of Washington relating to Black history. Specifically, we are soliciting the services of historians and architectural historians to identify Black “creators” (architects, designers, engineers, artists, builders, etc) who have made contributions to Washington’s built environment and help tell the full story of Washington state history. The amount to be awarded to a successful bidder is $50,000 and proposals are due December 15, 2021.
The Black Historic Sites Survey is being supported in part by an Underrepresented Communities grant from the Historic Preservation Fund administered by the National Park Service, Department of the Interior. DAHP has administered several grants through this program, including surveys and National Register nominations for Latino and Filipino American historic sites in Washington State. DAHP is also dedicated to equitably promoting the recognition and preservation of historic and cultural resources that tell Washington State’s full history in order to empower Washingtonians and offer everyone a sense of inclusion and belonging in their communities.
