Our Grants Program helps owners, custodians, managers and communities to recognise, value and care for heritage.

Heritage NSW 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. 


The 2019-21 Funding Round has closed.

Emergency Works Grants are open year round.

Gets easier and more streamlined each year. Good interface and format. Excellent that it doesn't lose information if service drops out which happens frequently in the bush! - 2019-21 Applicant
