The National Library of Australia is calling for applications for the 2016 Community Heritage Grants (CHG).
The grants of up to $15,000 are available to community groups around the country to help preserve and manage locally held, nationally significant cultural heritage collections of documents and objects for future generations. Eligible projects include significance assessments, preservation needs assessments, conservation activities and collection management.
The CHG began in 1994 and has provided more than $5.7 million for a total of 1,192 projects around Australia—from cities to the remotest of regions. Each year several organisations in South Australia are recipients of CHG funding and first-time recipients are invited to Canberra to receive their grant and enhance their skills through the expertise of institutions like the National Library—and take that knowledge back to their communities.
History SA is the South Australian contact point for intending applicants to the CHG and can assist with applications. Intending applicants are very welcome to contact us at History SA.
