Numerous sites across Western Australian are set for restoration and several interpretation projects and community events have received funding under the State Government’s 2021-2022 Heritage Grants Program.
The annual grants program offers dollar-for-dollar funding of up to $40,000 for conservation projects; and up to $20,000 for community events, activities and heritage interpretation projects for places listed on the State Heritage Register.
Among the 38 projects to receive funding as part of this grant round are the Former Freemasons Hall in Subiaco and Bon Marche Arcade for conservation works, and the Shire of Lake Grace for the development of an interpretation plan for the Lake Grace Australian Inland Hospital.
The reintroduced major conservation project funding supports projects to the State Heritage Grant stream by granting funding of up to $100,000 for works demonstrating economic recovery and job creation, natural disaster mitigation, and the reactivation of the heritage place.
Peedamulla Homestead in the Pilbara will receive major conservation project funding for conservation works to the site that will facilitate its future reactivation.
Since the Heritage Grants Program commenced in 1997, 822 heritage places have received more than $23 million in grants that assist in cementing the State’s heritage places in modern life.
