NORTHERN Tablelands MP Adam Marshall is encouraging local councils and community organisations to take advantage of the latest round of NSW Government heritage funding, before funding applications close at the end of the month.
Mr Marshall said the NSW Heritage Grants program aimed to help local communities preserve their heritage for future generations.
“This funding is a great opportunity to invest in planning, preserving and promoting our local heritage,” Mr Marshall said.
“The grants are open to a range of groups such as businesses, councils, community groups, Aboriginal organisations and individuals.”
Mr Marshall said the latest NSW Heritage Grants were available in three streams:
• Aboriginal Heritage grants of up to $70,000 for projects that conserve and promote items of Aboriginal cultural heritage listed on the State Heritage Register or gazetted as an Aboriginal Place;
• Projects which support the promotion, protection and celebration of NSW heritage can apply for grants of $25,000 to $50,000; and
• Councils can also apply for grants to prepare heritage reports and heritage planning studies.
“Every community across the Northern Tablelands has historical community and private buildings just waiting to be lovingly restored to their former glory,” Mr Marshall said.
“I urge communities to take advantage of this opportunity before time runs out.”
The NSW Heritage Grants are open for applications until 29 November. Applications can be for both state and locally listed heritage projects.
