Community Heritage Grants
Application Closes: 1 May 2015
The Community Heritage Grants (CHG) program aims to identify Australian cultural heritage collections which are publicly accessible, locally held and nationally significant.
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 program is funded by the Australian Government and managed by the National Library of Australia, with support provided by the Attorney General’s Department through the Ministry for the Arts; the National Archives of Australia; the National Film and Sound Archive; and the National Museum of Australia.
Since 1994, 1117 projects across Australia have received $5.3 million in funding
