The Community Heritage Grants 2021 round is now closed. Applicants for the 2021 round will be contacted in September-October 2021. 

All applicants must read the Guidelines before submitting an application and will need to refer to these guidelines while completing the application form.  

Applicants may also find the following resources useful:

  • the Assessment Reports from the 2020 Round and 2021 Round.  These reports contain analysis and comments from the CHG assessors regarding applications in each round;
  • the 2019 Round project summary report, which includes the names of consultants who have undertaken assessment reports. 

A sample Grant Deed, which outlines your obligations if your project is funded, is also available to review.

The National Library uses the online grants management system SmartyGrants to receive CHG applications. No mailed or emailed applications/documentation will be accepted. All applications submitted will receive an automatic acknowledgement and a CHG application number which must be quoted in all future correspondence.
