I encourage all owners and managers of local heritage items in Heathcote to consider applying for NSW Government funding for local conservation projects.
More than $4million of funding is available for local government, businesses and community organisations to reactivate and animate local heritage spaces to preserve their heritage significance.
There are two heritage funding programs open for application:
- $2.67 million in funding is available under the second round of Heritage Activation Grants program – this program is open to owners and managers of local heritage items listed on their council’s Local Environmental Plan;
- $2 million is available under the first round of the Local Heritage Strategic Projects Program – proposed projects can include conservation and repair work, the development of heritage management, strategy and policy plans and projects developed to specifically raise community awareness, knowledge and understanding of local heritage
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.
