MMAPSS aims to preserve and protect Australia’s maritime heritage and has provided regional museums and organisations with a total of $125,000 to 17 projects and seven internships.
The recipients will undertake a variety of projects such as conservation of an anchor, and conduct research on boat repairs, building and boat design, and to develop a new exhibition.
MMAPSS is administered by the Australian National Maritime Museum (ANMM) and has been supporting maritime heritage since 1995. So far, the Scheme has provided more than $1.5 million for 380 projects throughout Australia.
