Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith welcomes the news that the latest round of NSW Government heritage funding is open.

The three grant programs aim to fund projects that promote and help put planning in place to protect the state’s heritage.

Stuart Ayres said the latest round of NSW Heritage Grants would help local communities preserve their heritage for future generations.

“This funding is a great opportunity to invest in planning, preserving and promoting our heritage,” Stuart Ayres said.

“Penrith and Blue Mountains City Council have been successful under previous funding rounds to ensure our local heritage is protected.”

“The grants are open to a range of groups such as businesses, councils, community groups, Aboriginal organisations and individuals.”

The latest NSW Heritage Grants are available in three streams.

  • Aboriginal Heritage grants of up to $70,000 are available 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.
  • Councils can also apply for grants to prepare heritage reports and heritage planning studies.

The NSW Heritage Grants are open for applications until 29 November. Applications can be for both state and locally listed heritage projects.
