Applications for the 2013 Community Heritage Grants funding round are now open.
The Community Heritage Grants (CHG) program provides grants of up to $15,000 to community organisations such as libraries, archives, museums, genealogical and historical societies, multicultural and Indigenous groups. The grants are provided to assist with the preservation of locally owned, but nationally significant collections of materials that are publicly accessible including artefacts, letters, diaries, maps, photographs, and audio visual material.
The types of projects supported include Significance Assessments of collections; Preservation Needs Assessments of collections; conservation activities and collection management; and training workshops. For South Australian community museums and historical societies, the CHG is a great source of funding for assessments and for implementing recommendations made in Preservation Needs Assessments.
Applications close on 1 May 2013 (5pm AEST)
