Helping hand for heritage properties

Penrith City Council is offering a helping hand to those responsible for the area's heritage listed properties.

Owners, tenants and not-for-profit organisations across the city can now apply for grants provided by the council to help protect and boost Penrith’s valuable and unique cultural heritage.

Applications are open until June 5 for the Heritage Assistance Fund Grants, offered on a dollar-for-dollar basis where council contributes half of the cost of the restoration works. Works can range from $10 to $5,000.
