Ipswich City Council is encouraging owners of heritage listed places to take advantage of the latest round of State Government grants which are now open for application.
Round 5 of the Heritage Community Sustainability Action (CSA) grants are open now until 19 April 2021.
Eligible owners and custodians of Queensland’s significant heritage-listed places can apply for grants up to $40,000 for projects that conserve places on Queensland Government’s Heritage Register including: buildings, education, industry, domestic homes, hotels and churches.
The grant funding can be used for roofing, stumping, painting, restoration or urgent repair works and must be conducted using best practice in heritage conservation.
Mayor Teresa Harding said it was an excellent opportunity for property owners to conserve Ipswich’s legacy as being home to beautiful heritage buildings and places.
“Ipswich has a long and rich history, and conserving and investing in our heritage strengthens our city’s character and liveability,” Mayor Harding said.
“The City of Ipswich is Queensland’s oldest provincial city and, as a result, is home to a diverse range of heritage-listed places.
“We want to encourage this history to be conserved and protected for future generations.
“We encourage eligible owners to apply for the funding and invest in conserving the character and identity of our heritage listed buildings, which attract visitors to our great city.”
The grants are open to all owners of places in Ipswich on the Queensland Heritage Register, for more information or to apply click here.
