Apply now for history grants

By McIvor Times

COMMUNITY groups can apply for up to $15,000 for projects that preserve and share stories from the past.

Member for Euroa Steph Ryan said the grants aimed to support local historical groups planning or working on projects and encouraged local historical societies, schools, sporting clubs and specialist interest groups to apply for a grant to help share their stories.

Projects previously supported through the grants program include the digitisation and preservation of newspapers, virtual exhibitions and websites, filmmaking and playwriting, historical walks and the restoration of historical costumes.

The local history grants program is open to all not-for-profit community groups. Applications close 5pm, December 18.
