The scheme, administered by the Australian National Maritime Museum, offers funding to help organisations preserve or display objects of national and historical maritime significance. Grants of up to $15,000 are available for each project.
Grant categories include collection management, conservation and presentation and education and public programs. The scheme also offers up to $3,000 to support internships to help staff develop museological skills to care for maritime collections.
The scheme has provided more than $1.5 million to support over 380 projects across Australia since it started in 1995.
