The Australian Government, together with the Department of Communications and the Arts; National Library of Australia; the National Archives of Australia; the National Film and Sound Archive and the National Museum of Australia, is seeking applications for its Community Heritage Grants (CHG) program.

The Community Heritage Grants (CHG) program provides grants of up to $15,000 to community organisations such as libraries, archives, museums, genealogical and historical societies, multicultural and Indigenous groups. 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.

Types of Projects

The types of projects supported include

  • significance assessments of collections
  • preservation needs assessments of collections
  • conservation activities and collection management, and
  • training workshops.

Eligibility Criteria

  • A not-for-profit, incorporated organisation that:
    • owns or manages a collection of nationally significant material;
    • is accessible to the general public.
  • Funded organisations must make their collections accessible for research, by appointment, via the Internet, or on temporary or permanent exhibition.
  • Examples of not-for-profit, incorporated organisations which are encouraged to apply are:
    • Archives
    • Art galleries
    • Community groups
    • Genealogical societies
    • Historical societies
    • Indigenous groups
    • Migrant community groups
    • Museums
    • Professional associations
    • Religious groups
  • Other organisations, such as public libraries and independent museums located within universities, may also be eligible to apply.
