Yarra Plenty Regional Library services the outer municipalities of Nillumbik, Whittlesea and Banyule in the north of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. This blog promoting local history in our community has been operating since 2006 and is managed by the Local and Family History Librarian.
The Local History Grants Program (LHGP) supports projects that preserve and present Victorian local history. The LHGP is administered by Public Record Office Victoria. The program is funded through the Community Support Fund. Applications for the 2008-09 round of the grants program are being accepted between 12 September and 24 November 2008
All Yarra Plenty Region Local History groups are encouraged to apply for funding. Contact the Local History librarian for a support letter for your project.
