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:
- Ngulingah Local Aboriginal Land Council’s Cubawee Aboriginal Place Management Plan under the Aboriginal Heritage Places stream
- Lismore City & Tenterfield Shire Councils under the Local Government Heritage Advisors stream and Local Heritage Places stream
“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.”
