Heritage Funding

Both the local Heritage Fund and the Heritage Publication Fund has been established by the Bland Shire Council with the aid of a grant from the Heritage Office of the NSW Department of Planning to enhance and promote the heritage of the Bland Shire.

LOCAL HERITAGE ASSISTANCE FUND

Aim of the Fund

The aim of the project is to encourage as much positive work on heritage items in the area as possible. In the past, many grant programs were for individual buildings only. This program will provide kick start funding to encourage the joint funding of a number of projects. In the process, it is hoped that this will engender a greater interest and concern for conservation for other heritage items within the Council's area.

HERITAGE PUBLICATION LOAN FUND

Aim of the Fund

The aim of the project is to assist community groups or individuals within the Bland Shire Local Government Area with the printing costs associated with heritage publications by providing a loan of up to $2500.00 that will be required to be repaid to Council within a specified time frame.

The guidelines and application form for the Local Heritage Assistance Fund and the Heritage Publication Loan Fund can be downloaded below.
