South Burnett community groups have been invited to apply for funding from the 2015 round of the Federal Government’s Community Heritage Grants program.

The scheme provides grants of up to $15,000 to help preserve cultural heritage collections of national significance.

“The Community Heritage Grants program is now managed by the National Library and is accepting grant applications to help communities to better preserve their local heritage,” Deputy Prime Minister and Member for Wide Bay Warren Truss said.

“Community organisations including historical societies, museums, public libraries, archives, Indigenous and migrant community groups which have public collections are eligible to apply.”

The grants can assist with a broad range of activities including:

  • Preservation needs assessments for collections
  • The purchase of archival quality storage materials
  • Preservation training projects
  • Conservations activities, including cleaning treatment or rebinding
  • Purchase and installation of environmental control and monitoring equipment
  • Copy of materials once originals have been preserved
  • Cataloguing or collection management software

The grants are available for projects which help preserve nationally significant collections.

Any Australian, incorporated not-for-profit community organisation is eligible to apply.  Application close on May 1.

  • More information is available on the National Library website
