The Department of Premier and Cabinet and the Heritage Council of NSW work together to connect communities to heritage at a local and state level. One way we do this is through the Heritage Grants Program, providing grants to heritage owners and custodians, local government and the community to deliver a broad range of heritage outcomes.
