Heritage Assistance Grants

Every year, Wingecarribee Shire Council, with assistance from the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage, offers small grants to owners of recognised heritage properties to undertake minor repairs, maintenance work and works to meet Building Code of Australia upgrades.


The grants, which are awarded on a dollar-for-dollar basis, are offered to non-government owners of heritage listed properties, properties within heritage conservation areas, draft heritage items, and those that are being considered for heritage listing by Council.


Priority for the allocation of funding assistance is generally given to projects involving heritage items requiring urgent maintenance; heritage buildings in conservation areas; heritage buildings with public access and visibility; projects where owners are experiencing difficulties in funding works to a heritage standard; and fire, access and services upgrades.


2016-17 Grant Application & Guidelines

The Grants are run each financial year. Applications for 2016-17 closed at midnight on Sunday 28 August 2016, however the following information is provided for future reference.
