Senator the Hon Robert Hill
Leader of the Government in the Senate
Minister for the Environment and Heritage
Australia's rich diversity of cultural heritage places - from Indigenous heritage sites through to 19th Century churches - will benefit from Federal Government conservation funding announced today.
The Federal Minister for the Environment and Heritage, Senator Robert Hill, said today that more than $3 million would be spent to support 44 different heritage conservation projects around Australia. This funding was being made available under a new Cultural Heritage Projects Program (CHPP).
"This new program helps Australians to conserve their cultural heritage places in a very practical way," Senator Hill said.
"Funding will enable much-needed heritage work to proceed including stonework conservation, roof restoration and stained glass window preservation through to oral history studies, interpretation projects and developing an Indigenous community archive."
Senator Hill said funding would support important conservation works including:
"Each project will make an important contribution to the improved management and conservation of Australia's overall cultural heritage," Senator Hill said.
"We hope that through conserving these places of cultural significance - both built and Indigenous heritage - we are also increasing public awareness of our national heritage."
The CHPP program is open to not-for-profit and community groups, local government bodies and private owners of heritage properties. Projects eligible for funding relate to the conservation of nationally significant places listed in the Australian Heritage Commission's, Register of the National Estate and the Register's Interim List, or on a State heritage register.
Funding highlights and a list of the 44 projects follow.
