Local Heritage Grants now open - Yass Valley Council
5 June 2015
The Yass Valley Local Heritage Grants are now open for 2015/16.
In association with the NSW Heritage Branch, Yass Valley Council provides grants to assist owners to undertake conservation works to heritage buildings or places within the Local Government Area. Generally, grants are in the $500 to $2,000 range - up to a maximum of 50% of the proposed cost of works.
Each year, one annual grant to a maximum of $2,000 may be offered to a project undertaken by a Senior (over 65) on the aged pension; no co-contribution will be required to match Council's funding for the Seniors Heritage Grant.
"The aim of Council's Local Heritage Program is to encourage as much positive work on heritage items in the area as possible, and engender greater interest and concern for conservation for all other heritage items within the Council's area" said Chris Berry, Director of Planning.

Applications close Friday 26th June 2015.
