Last Chance For Funding

MidCoast Council

Don’t miss the opportunity to apply for funding for your heritage building restoration.

Grants for heritage buildings are jointly funded by MidCoast Council and the NSW Government. They typically offer up to $2,000, and in exceptional cases grants of up to $5,000 are available.

“Heritage buildings are an important asset to our community, attracting tourists, increasing pride in the community and giving us a sense of who we are and where we’ve come from,” added Mayor Pontin.

As part of the application process, eligible property owners must demonstrate their contribution to the project, as the grant cannot make up more than 50% of the total project cost.

The local heritage fund focuses on preserving our region’s heritage and creating sympathetic renovations and improvements to our buildings and places.

“This program has supported some wonderful restoration projects over the past five years, and we’re excited to announce this funding opportunity for 2024,” Mayor Pontin said.

Applications for heritage funding close on 1 May 2024.
