Community groups across Tasmania are invited to apply for grants through the 2015-16 round of the Community Heritage and Icons Grants programme.
These grants are part of the Australian Government's $1.4 million commitment to provide opportunities for community groups to engage with and raise awareness of places recognised on Australia's National Heritage List.
I strongly encourage community organisations involved in the conservation, promotion, and awareness raising of places on Australia's National Heritage List, to consider making an application.
Grants of between $2,500 and $10,000 are available for community organisations to undertake activities that promote community engagement with places on Australia's National Heritage List.
Applications for funding are open until 22 March 2016.
Further information about Community Heritage and Icons Grants, including the programme guidelines and application form, is available at www.environment.gov.au/community-heritage-icons-grants.
