The NSW Office of Environment and Heritage 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.
When is funding is available?
The 2019-21 round has now closed for applications. State Heritage Register Emergency Works Grants are open year-round to eligible applicants.
About Heritage Grants
The 2019-21 funding round is offering $6 million over a two-year period to:
- improve identification, protection, knowledge and understanding of the State's heritage
- assist owners and custodians with the conservation and activation of items of State and local heritage significance and Aboriginal Places
- encourage promotion celebration and cultural participation of the State's heritage.
To increase efficiencies, the nine previous streams have been streamlined into three broad categories:
- Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Grants
- Community Heritage Grants
- Caring for State Heritage Grants
Information on the grants, including who is eligible and what types of projects are eligible, is available in each of the grant category guidelines, located below.
