Victorian Community Groups have been invited to apply for a share in $350,000 to support the State’s local history.

Not for Profits are eligible for grants of up to $15,000 each for projects that preserve and share stories of Victoria’s past.

“The Local History Grants program provides grants to support a diverse range of projects, including exhibitions and multimedia projects, publications, oral histories and the digitisation or preservation of vital historical items which together provide greater access to our community history,” State Premier and Minister for the Arts Ted Baillieu said.

The grants are available for groups such as historical societies, schools, sporting clubs and special interest groups, for projects that capture and share the fascinating stories about Victoria.

“Importantly, in addition to supporting individual projects, the Local History Grants Program also supports the tireless efforts of volunteer networks and community organisations that act as custodians of our state’s heritage, ensuring that it is available to future generations,” Baillieu said.

 “Victoria has a rich history with so many important stories to uncover and celebrate. This program supports projects that enable community members to connect with their history in innovative and engaging ways.”

Applications for the Local History Grants Program, run by the Public Record Office Victoria, are open now and close on Monday 12 November 2012.
