Congratulations to this year’s successful grant applicants! The list of organisations and their projects are included in this newsletter. As always, there were many more applications than could be funded. This year there were 35 applications totalling almost $293,000 in funding requested, almost twice the amount of money that we had to offer. However, after much deliberation by the Assessment Committee, 19 projects were finally selected. There were a number of digitisation, cataloguing, storage and restoration projects but over half of the projects were for new interpretive displays which tend to quickly exhaust the grant fund. This year unsuccessful applicants were sent letters containing feedback on their applications and we hope museums found this useful. We appreciate all the time and effort that goes into the applications, and urge those of you who were not successful on this occasion to contact us to discuss your plans and see how we might assist you this coming year.
