Cardinia Shire Council’s Heritage Grants 2020–21 applications now open

Published: 20 May 2020

Applications for Cardinia Shire Council's Heritage Grants 2020–21 are currently open.

The grant program helps support our passionate community in identifying, preserving, managing and promoting Cardinia Shire’s heritage assets.

Eligible applicants and projects can apply for grants of up to $5,000 in matched funding to help with projects seeking to:

  • repair or conserve places and sites of heritage significance, including significant trees
  • complete capital works to improve community access
  • develop conservation management plans, or
  • develop and install interpretive signage.

Applications for staged projects will be considered. Privately-owned heritage places will only be considered for funding if they are used or accessed by the community.

Heritage places eligible for funding include those listed in the Heritage Overlay of the Cardinia Planning Scheme. To check if a site is covered by a Heritage Overlay, visit, enter the street address and select 'Zones and overlays'.
