Community Heritage Grants – 2021 Round

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

The Community Heritage Grants (CHG) program provides grants of up to $15,000 (GST inclusive) to community organisations such as libraries, archives, museums, genealogical and historical societies, multicultural and Indigenous groups. Successful CHG recipients are also given access to online workshops.

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 grants are also aimed at helping make these collections of materials more publicly accessible.

CHG is funded by the Australian Government through the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications (Office for the Arts); National Library of Australia; the National Archives of Australia; the National Film and Sound Archive and the National Museum of Australia.
