Applications open for Aboriginal heritage grants

Posted: November 13th, 2020

Aboriginal not-for-profit organisations are invited to apply for the annual grants program to protect and promote registered Aboriginal heritage sites in Western Australia.

The Preserving our Aboriginal Sites grant program is offering grants of up to $30,000 for ‘on-the­-ground’ projects such as remediation of burial sites, fence and signage installation, and promotion of cultural information.

Previous projects funded by the State Government program include fencing Aboriginal burial sites on Belele Station in the Murchison, installation of interpretive cultural signage in the Shark Bay UNESCO world heritage area, and permanent fencing and heat-resistant signage highlighting cultural significance of Boogooda in the Kimberley.

Applications close on January 29, 2021, with successful projects expected to be announced in April 2021. For more information or to apply click here
