Preserve old letters, diaries, photographs and artefacts with government funding.

Community organisations can apply for up to $15,000 in funds through the Community Heritage Grants Program.

Hume MP Angus Taylor said the grants could help libraries, museums, historical societies and other organisations preserve significant collections.

”These grants can make all the difference in preserving our community history for future generations,” he said.

“The program also offers collection management training workshops to community organisations to assist staff and volunteers to preserve significant items.”

Applications close on May 8, 2017.
