$98,500 IN GRANTS TO PROTECT LOCAL HERITAGE

Nationals Member for Lismore Thomas George MP today announced $98,500 in NSW Government heritage grants to protect local heritage.

“The NSW Government’s Heritage Grant Program is designed to help communities care for their local heritage,” Mr George said.

There were five successful grant applicants under this year’s round of funding, namely:

“Looking after our heritage is everyone’s responsibility and local government plays an important role in maintaining heritage at a community level,” Mr George said.

“The local government grants will enable councils to fund their own small grants programs to encourage community action on the front line of heritage protection.”
