$8 MILLION AVAILABLE TO HELP BRING LOCAL HERITAGE ‘BACK TO LIFE’

MEMBER for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall is encouraging local heritage item owners and managers to apply for a State Government local Heritage Activation Grant to rejuvenate local heritage places.

 

Mr Marshall said $2.67 million would be available each financial year for the next three years to owners and managers of local heritage items through the program.

 

Heritage Activation Grants are open to owners and managers of heritage items listed on their council’s local heritage registers,” he said.

 

“These items have already had their heritage values assessed and the government wants to provide ways of making it easier to open these spaces to the community.”

 

Heritage Activation Grants provide funding for local councils, businesses and community organisations to reactivate and animate local heritage spaces to preserve their heritage significance.

 

The grants, which are part of the Heritage Near Me program, will open more heritage spaces to communities across the state.

 

Under the program, the government will also fund a heritage roadshow team of experts and a series of grants, including the Heritage Activation Grants, the Local Heritage Grants and Heritage Green Energy Grants.

 

Mr Marshall said the $8 million program aimed to help bring local heritage back to life.

 

“Local communities know their local heritage better than anyone,” he said.

 

“This funding will help communities conserve and celebrate their stories, places and values.”

 

Applications for the funding close on Monday, 27 June 2016.
