Seroja Grants Program for Heritage Repairs

Seroja Grants Program for Heritage Repairs
Tuesday 3 August 2021

A new grants program to reimburse eligible owners and operators of heritage places with repair costs for damages as a result of Tropical Cyclone Seroja. 

The Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements provide grants of up to $20,000 to private organisations, individuals and Local Governments who own or operate eligible local and State heritage places.

This grants program is jointly funded under the Commonwealth/State Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements to reimburse costs for cleaning-up cyclone related debris including the removal and disposal of fallen trees, and to support the repair of eligible heritage places including the incorporation of works to increase the property’s resilience to future natural disasters.

Anyone wishing to register interest in the grants, should email heritagesupport@dplh.wa.gov.au or phone (08) 6551 9993.

Image caption: Oakabella Homestead in Northampton was added to the State Register of Heritage Places in 1995, recognising early agricultural development and was a relatively complete example of farm buildings set in the landscape. The barn, pictured in 2011 (right), suffered damage to its stone gable and façades. It is one of nearly 70 heritage properties damaged in Cyclone Seroja.
