Heritage Grants Program
The Heritage Grants program is one of the Community, Youth and Senior heritage projects funded by NSW Office of Environment and Heritage, and provides funding to individuals and community groups for local historical research. The program is designed to facilitate the dissemination of local Australian stories, expression of the diversity of Australian culture as it impacts on communities, and to highlight and localise pivotal Australian historical events and issues. Please subscribe to our eNewsletter or blog for the latest news on this program.
Please note: The 2016 Heritage Grants Program application round is now closed. The RAHS has applied for funding from NSW Office of Environment and Heritage to continue running this program in 2017-2018.
