Local Heritage Funding is a great investment for councils across NSW. For the relatively small dollars the council contributes, such a fund generates positive, feel-good community attitudes and long-term on-the-ground heritage conservation outcomes.

Councils will benefit from promoting and publicising their local grants program to heritage owners and managers. Many owners and managers say they are unaware of the funding opportunities available. This is one of the most powerful incentives available for heritage properties.
