History grants close soon

Member for Murray Plains, Peter Walsh, is encouraging people to get involved and apply for the Local History Grants Program; which is being run by the Public Record Office of Victoria; before it closes on January 24.

“The program encourages and fosters community activities that preserve, record and share the local, social and community history of Victoria and Victorians,” Mr Walsh said.

“I encourage all local historical societies, schools, sporting clubs and specialist interest groups to apply for this grant to help share their stories,” he said.

“Applications are now open for grants of any size up to $15,000 to assist community groups, sports clubs, schools and other organisations that collect and preserve the stories of our region.

“Although many other electorates have received funding to their local history groups, I encourage more groups across the region to get involved and consider applying to give them the resources to continue working on amazing projects that help our regional towns stories continue for generations to come,” Mr Walsh said.

The Local History Grants Program is now open to all not-for-profit community groups. Applications close at midnight on January 24, so go to https://prov.vic.gov.au/community/grants-and-awards/local-history-grants-program.
