Local Heritage Funding

Local Heritage Places

Bourke Shire Council offers small grants anually on a $ for $ basis to private home owners for restoration and repair work.   Conserving places of historic value is important to the whole community.

This is a good opportunity for owners of old houses to look at repairing or repainting their home.   Some of the work that has received assistance in the past includes repairing verandahs, internal and external painting and roof repairs.

If you think you have a project that might qualify for these funds, or wish to make an appointment with Council’s Heritage Advisor, please phone Carolyn Crain on (02) 6830 8000.  

Applications for the 2017/2018 year have now closed, please check back in June/July 2018 for funding opportunities.
