Local History Grants Now Open

The Nationals Member for Lowan, Emma Kealy MP is encouraging community groups to apply for grants of up to $15,000 for projects that preserve, record and share stories from our past.

Projects that have been supported in the past include the digitisation of historic newspapers to developing heritage town walks, recording of oral histories and restoration of historical costumes.

“These grants are provided to support projects that share our history in innovative and engaging ways”, Ms Kealy said.

“The Lowan electorate has a rich and diverse history with many important stories to share and preserve for future generations.

“I encourage historical societies, schools, sporting clubs and special interest groups to visit the Public Record Office website to find out more about the program and how they can apply”, she said.

The Local History Grants Program is open to all not-for-profit community groups.
