Small Heritage Grant Program 2020

Applications for Small Heritage Grants to encourage and support owners of local heritage items across the Shire will reopen in June 2020.‚Äč

“The Small Heritage Grant program is a great opportunity allowing heritage items across the Shire to receive much needed repairs and restorations, keeping the local heritage in our communities alive”, said Warrumbungle Shire Council Mayor, Councillor Denis Todd. “This grant funding provides dollar for dollar funding to carry out works on local heritage buildings.”

The Small Heritage Grants Program runs in conjunction with the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage and Heritage NSW.

“The grant program has been operating throughout the Shire for the last 10 years and has offered assistance to many small heritage projects. Past projects that have been completed through the grant funding program include external and internal painting, repairs to roofing and gutters, repairs to internal walls and maintenance works to ensure heritage buildings are safe and meet today’s legislative requirements”, said Cr Todd.

“These grants are a great opportunity for owners of heritage buildings to undertake essential repairs ensuring the integrity of heritage buildings remain for the community to enjoy for many years to come”, concluded Cr Todd.

Applications close Tuesday 30 June 2020 and successful applicants are expected to be notified after the July 2020 Ordinary Council meeting. Successful applicants will need to have the proposal completed by 1 May 2021 for refunds to be processed.

Applications and guidelines on the Small Heritage Grant Program 2020 can be found on Council’s website and can be posted or emailed on request. Applications will not be accepted for properties on which rates are unpaid.
