Applications are now open for the annual Preserving our Aboriginal Sites grant program.
Applications are now open for the annual Preserving our Aboriginal Sites grant program to protect and promote registered Aboriginal heritage sites in Western Australia.
Aboriginal not-for-profit organisations can apply for 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 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.
The Preserving our Aboriginal Sites grant program is part of the State Government's commitment to supporting Aboriginal people in managing their unique heritage, including protecting registered Aboriginal places and objects.
Applications close on January 29, 2021, with successful projects expected to be announced in April 2021. For more information or to apply visit the Preserving Aboriginal sites grants program page.
