Now in its 27th year, the Community Heritage Grants (CHG) program provides grants of up to $15,000 to community groups to help preserve and manage locally held but nationally significant cultural heritage collections.
The program has had a significant impact on safeguarding local but nationally significant collections around the country, from inner cities to the most remote parts of Australia.
Dr Marie-Louise Ayres, Director-General of the National Library of Australia, said the range of community groups receiving the grants had highlighted the incredible diversity of Australia’s people and stories. “The grants help to preserve and manage these collections for future generations.”
Projects ranged from preserving indigenous languages to caring for rare meteorological equipment.
Applications close on Monday, 4th May. To submit an application or find out more information visit nla.gov.au/chg.
