This new $1 million grant program is being trialled to increase public engagement with an item listed on the NSW State Heritage Register. It is designed to protect and promote our State’s heritage by incentivising owners to invest in heritage activation.
We are looking for applications that can demonstrate a better use of space, engage community in heritage, contribute to community wellbeing and support economic activity and vibrancy within our local areas.
A single grant will be allocated through a three-stage process:
- Stage 1: Expression of Interest (EOI) – this will be a review against the eligibility criteria.
- Stage 2: Application stage – eligible applicants will be invited to submit further details to support their proposal. All applications submitted during Stage 2 will be assessed and ranked.
- Stage 3: PitchFest – the top ranked applicants will be asked to pitch their project to a Judging Panel – with the successful project awarded $1 million.
