Grants for Heritage Places

Owners of State Heritage Places may be able to secure funds through the Department for Environment and Water for projects that contribute to the longevity of these places.

To be eligible the project has to relate to a place that is on the State Heritage Register, or located in a State Heritage Area.  Throughout SA there are many community museums and societies located in such places, so if there are some building works that need doing this may be an avenue to fund them.

Grants can be for conservation projects including conservation of significant building fabric or reinstatement or protection of significant features, such as verandahs.  New roofs, guttering, window frames, damp treatment, underpinning and repointing are all activities that could be eligible for funding.  Details and the application process are available here.

SA Heritage Grants also has a focus on community projects, such as works that support adaptive re-use of heritage places, or that promote the development of heritage tourism or skills in heritage trades, so the fund is a good fit for historical organisations.

The History Trust’s community history officers are always very happy to talk with community organisations about grant funding opportunities and making applications.  We can be contacted on 8203 9888 or community@history.sa.gov.au
