Local Heritage Grant Program 2024/2025

Lachlan Shire Council invites all to apply for a grant from our Local Heritage Fund to assist with conservation and restoration work. Applications, including quotations for the proposed work, close 5pm on Monday 22 July 2024.

The aim is to maintain, preserve or restore elements that contribute to the item’s heritage value. Council staff in consultation with Council’s Heritage Advisor are available to assist and provide free advice on proposed works. 

Successful applicants are likely to be announced in September 2024 and have until April 2025 to complete the work.

This scheme rewards meritorious applications with a dollar for dollar grant that benefits the heritage of the Shire.  Detailed guidelines and the application form is  provided below:
