Applications are now open for Local Heritage Grants

Published on 10 May 2023


Applications for Yass Valley Council’s 2023/2024 Local Heritage Grants Program are now open, with $19,000 in funding available for heritage conservation projects.

Local Heritage Grants aim to contribute to the preservation of structures of historical value and to foster positive attitudes towards heritage and conservation.

In 2022, seven heritage groups received Heritage Grants across the Yass Valley.

Last year, DJs Butchery owner, Darren Garner used the funding to paint the facia of his building which had become weather damaged.

“The local heritage grant made it possible to make the building look presentable and to keep our main street looking great especially since my building is in the centre of town,” Mr Garner said.

Mayor Allan McGrath said the Local Heritage Grants Program is a way for Council to provide financial assistance to enable maintenance projects to structure of significant historical value to ensure their conservation for future generations.

“It is so important for Council to provide its financial support in order to help preserve these valuable structures in our towns and villages,” Cr McGrath added.

Applications for the Local Heritage Grants Program close at 5pm on Monday 26th June 2023.
