Only the three grantees are eligible to receive Distributed National Collections Program grants, with each delivering a sub-program.

Due to the specialised nature of the Distributed National Collections Program, this grant opportunity was established as a closed, non?competitive process by Ministerial decision. This is appropriate due to the specialised expertise that the National Library of Australia and the Australian National Maritime Museum hold within their institutions, and that the Bursary Program assists cultural heritage sector delegates to attend the annual Australian Museums and Galleries Association National Conference and/or the Regional, Remote and Community Day.

Grant Number

The Distributed National Collections Program is directed at the identification, development, conservation, maintenance and display of collections of nationally significant artistic or cultural material. The training, professional development, partnering and networking, collection support and management activities supported by the Distributed National Collections Program are intended to assist in achieving this core aim. These activities support the strengthening of best practice in the museums and galleries sector. Grants are provided to the National Library of Australia to administer the Community Heritage Grants Program; to the Australian National Maritime Museum to administer the Maritime Museums of Australia Project Support Scheme; and to the Australian Museums and Galleries Association (AMaGA) to administer AMaGA’s National Conference Bursaries Program.

The objectives of the Distributed National Collections Program are achieved by:

  • assisting not-for-profit, incorporated organisations to identify, collect, develop, conserve, preserve, maintain and display objects or collections of nationally-significant artistic or cultural material.
