Grants of up to $15,000 are available for community organisations such as museums, libraries, archives, genealogical and historical societies, and Indigenous and multicultural groups.
The grants are designed to assist community organisations in the preservation and protection of locally owned but nationally significant cultural heritage material such as archives and records, oral histories, textiles, paintings, drawings, objects, photographs and audio visual material.
Funding is also available for training workshops, preservation assessment of collections and related conservation activities.
The Community Heritage Grants Program is administered by the National Library of Australia, with support provided by the Department of Communications and the Arts, the National Archives of Australia, the National Film and Sound Archive and the National Museum of Australia.
