The 2020 Community Heritage Grant round is now closed. All applications received will be reviewed and assessed. The outcome of this process will be announced in late October.

The following information relates to applying for a Community Heritage Grant:

  • Applicants should read the Guidelines before submitting an application and will need to refer to these guidelines while completing the application form.  
  • Applicants may also find it useful to read the latest Assessment Report, which contains general comments and recommendations from the CHG external assessors regarding applications received in the previous grant round. 
  • 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.
