Now open: 2018 Community Heritage Grants

March 5, 2018 by in News


The National Library of Australia is calling for applications for the 2018 Community Heritage Grants.

The grants of up to $15,000 are available to community groups around the country to help preserve and manage locally held, nationally significant cultural heritage collections of documents and objects for future generations.

The Community Heritage Grants (CHG) program provides grants 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.

Eligible projects include:

  • Significance assessments
  • Preservation needs assessments
  • Conservation activities
  • Collection management
  • Training workshops.

First-time recipients are invited to Canberra to receive their grant and enhance their skills through the expertise of institutions like the National Library—and take that knowledge back to their communities.

Applications, close on Monday 7 May 2018.
