Quotes from Territory Families, Housing and Communities Chief Executive, Ken Davies
“The grants are a wonderful opportunity for historians and researchers to celebrate our rich and unique history to ensure its continuation for our future generations.
“We must do everything to document our history as it contributes so much to our identity and once lost, cannot be recovered.
“I encourage all people interested in recording our history, in whatever that format may be, to apply for a grant.”
