Heritage grants

Applications closed

The City of Sydney sponsors a wide variety of projects and initiatives. Priority is given to activities that help support Sustainable Sydney 2030.

The aim of the Heritage Grants Program is to encourage non-profit landowners of heritage items to undertake new conservation work which, without the financial assistance of this program, may not be able to occur. In doing so, the City's heritage is improved.

The program provides funding opportunities for matched funding up to:

$10,000 for the restoration of non-residential buildings of heritage significance that are an important part of the City's character and are part of the visual fabric of Sydney's villages.

$5,000 for funding to undertake heritage documentation work, for example a heritage impact statement or conservation management plan. Up to 10% of the program budget will be allocated towards funding these applications.

General policy eligibility and exclusions apply.

Applications for this program are invited once a year.
