Twenty-seven State Heritage-listed properties are in for a spruce up, thanks to grants of $250,000 being provided under the first round of the new SA Heritage Grants Program.
The grants are aimed at helping to rejuvenate our built heritage, ensuring it is protected and preserved for future generations.
The State Heritage Places to gain funding in this first round include cottages, churches, woolsheds, a hotel, railway station, and a blacksmith barn, with applicants receiving grants ranging from $1,000 to $20,000.
The successful projects were selected by a panel of heritage architects and experts based on a set of criteria.
By providing a total of $250,000 to part-fund these projects, more than $1.6m worth of conservation works will be achieved.
Nearly 70 applications were received for funding in this first grant round.
Round Two of the SA Heritage Grants Program, with a total of $250,000 available for grants, will open this month, May 2019, and will close in late July 2019.
Under the program up to $5,000 is available for simple projects, $10,000 for complex projects and $20,000 for major projects.
Grants will only cover up to 50 percent of the anticipated costs of conservation works or documentation, with the recipient responsible for matching funding dollar for dollar. In some cases, in-kind labour and materials may be recognised as part of the matching contribution.
Conservation projects that benefit the public realm, activate under-utilised places, support specialised heritage training and/or facilitate tourism may get special consideration.
