MORE THAN $4 MILLION FOR LOCAL HERITAGE FUNDING AVAILABLE

Nationals Member for Lismore Thomas George MP is encouraging owners and managers of local heritage items to consider applying for more than $4 million in funding for local conservation projects

Mr George said these grants were designed to help communities rejuvenate and conserve their local heritage.

“I would urge all owners and managers of heritage items, councils, businesses, not-for-profit organisations and industry associations to consider applying for funding,” Mr George said.

There are two heritage funding programs open for application:

These programs are designed to build on the knowledge and connection communities have with their heritage.

“Communities know their heritage better than anyone – these NSW Government grants will help bring local heritage back to life,” Mr George said.

Applications under the Local Heritage Strategic Projects Program are open all year round subject to available funding. Applications under the Heritage Activation program open today and close on Monday 21 April.
