Member for Albury, Justin Clancy today announced that the Albury Electorate will benefit from $181,000 in grants under the NSW Government Heritage Grants Program.
“These grants will help local communities across Albury to know, value and care for their heritage,” said Mr Clancy.
Mr Clancy was pleased to announce these successful grants:
“Our heritage is important to who we are and local communities play an important role in maintaining heritage at a local level,” Mr Clancy said.
The 2019-21 NSW grants saw $5.8 million awarded to 241 projects statewide across three categories: Aboriginal Cultural Heritage, Caring for State Heritage and Community Heritage.
NSW Minister for Heritage, Don Harwin said protecting local heritage was an important step towards celebrating NSW’s history as a whole and maintaining a physical record of the past.
“Across NSW the Government is providing support for local heritage and indigenous groups, to protecting important heritage items ensuring communities maintain connection with their history,” he said.
