Community Heritage Grant Scheme – Open for Applications

The Community Heritage Grant Scheme supports projects that enhance the access and maintenance of heritage collections.

The Heritage Council is now accepting applications from community groups and not-for-profit non-governmental organisations around the country for its Community Heritage Grant Scheme 2024.

A broad range of project types are eligible for funding under the scheme including:

  • Workshops and training events that promote good heritage practice, in particular, we are interested in traditional building skills, craft skills, graveyard recording and biodiversity training.
  • Development of Digital Heritage Resources including digitisation, online exhibitions, oral history recordings, podcasts, and films. You need to make sure that the digital outputs you create
    with grant funding are available, open, and accessible.
  • Conservation surveys, reports, plans, and audits that will inform the future management of buildings and monuments, habitats, collections, or objects.
  • Conservation works to buildings, monuments, habitats, collections, or objects.

This scheme is intended to enable communities and heritage non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to continue their work on existing projects or to start new initiatives.

Projects that can be commenced after an offer date in mid-April and completed before 15 November 2024 can be considered under this scheme.

A zoom information webinar about the scheme will be held on Monday 4 March at 12 noon, which you can register for here.

You must apply online  through the Heritage Council’s online grants system. Please note that a new Online Grants System will be operating for 2024. You will have to register first before you can start your application.

To consider your application, we must receive your online application along with supporting documents by 25 March 2024 at 5pm.
