SA Heritage Grants Closing Soon

burra building.JPGHalf a million dollars in grants is now available through the SA Heritage Grants Program to owners of State Heritage properties to help them undertake vital preservation and restoration works.

Minister for Environment and Water David Speirs says the program’s primary focus is the conservation of significant South Australian heritage places and areas.

South Australia has a rich architectural, historical and cultural heritage with places including the Australian Cornish Mining Sites in Burra in the Mid North & Moonta on the Yorke Peninsula.

Applications for the grants close on the 15th of March, for more information head to our website.

The $500,000 budget for the program will be divided into two rounds of $250,000.

Up to $5,000 will be available for simple projects, $10,000 for complex projects and $20,000 for major projects.

Conservation projects that benefit the public realm, activate under-utilised places, support specialised heritage training and/or facilitate tourism may get special consideration
