The Community Heritage Grants (CHG) program provides grants of up to $15,000 (GST inclusive) to community organisations such as museums, galleries, libraries, archives, 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.
The closing date for applications is Monday 10 May 2021.
