Inverell Shire Council's small heritage grants program has received a boost of $23,000 in stage government funding.
The program subsidises costs of independent heritage advisors for owners of local heritage listed buildings.
Announced by Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall, he said efforts will continue to preserve Inverell's historic buildings.
Funding has previously assisted a number of private owners with restoration and maintenance costs associated with owning heritage-listed properties.
"Looking after our heritage is everyone's responsibility and I commend Inverell Shire Council for the work it's doing in supporting property owners to preserve the town's identity," he said in a statement.
Mr Marshall believed it was "incredibly important" that prominent buildings in Inverell's CBD like the Inverell Club and Oxford Hotel are preserved for future generations.
"Over the last few years it has been fantastic to see exactly what this money can achieve.
"Last year the NSW Government provided heritage funding to help with the restoration of the former Sisters of Mercy convent building, which is being returned to its grand old glory days but in a modern context."
Mr Marshall said protecting local heritage was an important step towards celebrating the region's history and maintaining a physical record of the past.
"Those people interested in accessing this latest funding to undertake work or engage the services of a heritage advisor should get in contact with Inverell Shire Council," he said.
