Heritage Grants Program

ACT Heritage Grants 2016-2017

Twenty one successful projects in the ACT Heritage Grants Program were announced on Wednesday 24 August 2016.

The announcement of the successful projects was held at the heritage listed Ainslie School, Braddon, which this year received funding to conduct an oral history project to celebrate the school’s 90th anniversary in 2017.

The grants will provide over $343,000 to individuals and community groups to identify and undertake projects that promote and conserve our local heritage.
