About the Community Heritage and Icons Grants program
2016-17 was the last round for this Program and no further funding is available.
The Australian Government’s plan for a cleaner environment rests on four pillars: clean air, clean land, clean water and heritage protection. The Community Heritage and Icons Grants Program is a key component of heritage protection.
From places that define who we are and tell the story of our nation’s past, to the places that reflect our evolving heritage and where we are going, Australia’s National Heritage List is representative of Australia. Heritage assists us in maintaining our sense of community pride and national identity. Community engagement with these places of national significance will assist in the places being accessible, understood and celebrated.
Funding of up to $1.4 million (GST excl.) was allocated to the Program over three years from 2014-15, with up to $337,000 (GST excl.) available each year through the competitive grants component of the Program for projects that support community engagement with, and raise awareness of, places on Australia’s National Heritage List.
