The National Library of Australia (NLA) Community Heritage Grants (CHG) program is a competitive grants scheme designed for not-for-profit community organisations in the cultural heritage sphere in Australia. Little has been published about the role of the CHG in supporting the preservation of cultural heritage of national significance in regional collections or about the impact of the CHG on organisations which have received a grant. In 2011, the Charles Sturt University School of Information Studies provided $3,300 of internal research funding to Drs Sigrid McCausland and Kim M. Thompson to conduct an evaluative study of the CHG in New South Wales (NSW). This evaluative study gathers information about the impact of the CHG program on community organisations in regional NSW which maintain cultural heritage collections. It also aims to provide insight into the relationship between these organisations and some of the major national cultural institutions in Canberra.
