Heritage grants available
LOCAL residents who privately own a State Registered heritage place are invited to apply for the Heritage Council’s Heritage Grants Program. There has been $1.2million set aside for the program, with dollar-for-dollar funding for grants up to $100,000 to help private owners conserve their heritage listed properties. Last year 28 grants were shared in metropolitan and regional WA. Applications close on October 31, with successful applicants announced early next year.
