Community Heritage Grants
The Community Heritage Grants (CHG) program provides grants of up to $15,000 to community organisations such as libraries, archives, museums, genealogical and historical societies, multicultural and Indigenous groups. The grants are provided to assist with the preservation of locally owned, but nationally significant collections of materials that are publicly accessible including artefacts, letters, diaries, maps, photographs, and audio visual material.
The types of projects supported include:
- significance assessments of collections
- preservation needs assessments of collections
- conservation activities and collection management, and
- training workshops.
The Community Heritage Grants will open its annual funding round on Tuesday 9 March 2021. The closing date for applications is Monday 10 May 2021. The updated guidelines and information on the 2021 Round will be available on the National Library of Australia website prior to the opening date.
