Cultural Heritage Grants

Cultural Heritage Grants

We provide funding to support community groups to develop projects that promote the local history and cultural heritage of our residents and the local area.

Our Cultural Heritage Grants provide funding of up to $750 to groups and organisations to assist in developing projects that promote the local history and cultural heritage of the City of Whittlesea and its residents.

We invite submissions from community groups and organisations who wish to participate in the diverse expression of ‘living heritage’ through events that celebrate, inform and engage the broader community with local history, culture, heritage and traditions.

The objectives of the Cultural Heritage Grants are to fund the development and delivery of activities and events that:

  • contribute to an understanding of the local history and of the diverse cultural heritage of the area and its people
  • engage our residents in meaningful ways
  • empower communities to tell their own stories
  • advocate for the protection of local heritage sites and environment
  • are innovative, sustainable and accessible.
