Community Heritage Grants 2021

Applications now open

Applications for the 2021 Community Heritage Grants (CHG) program are open now until Monday, 12 May.

The CHG program provides grants of up to $15,000 (GST inclusive) to help community organisations care for their locally owned, but nationally significant collections. Past recipients include libraries, archives, museums, genealogical and historical societies, multicultural and Indigenous groups - some of which have shared their collections with Trove.

For more information, including links to application guidelines and forms visit the National Library CHG page.

Community Heritage Grants are funded by the Australian Government through the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications (Office for the Arts); the National Library of Australia; the National Archives of Australia; the National Film and Sound Archive and the National Museum of Australia.

Image information: The Embroiderers' Guild NSW Inc. received funding in 2019 for a Significance Assessment of their collection of over 3500 items related to embroidery. The Victorian-era tea cosy pictured is over 100 years old and depicts Australian wildflowers including waratah, flannel flowers and wattle. It was made by Mary Byrne, later Pigot, of Wagga Wagga and was donated by her family.
