Heritage Assistance Fund

The Heritage Assistance Fund provides financial assistance to owners and leaseholders who wish to undertake conservation projects on their properties listed on the City of Vincent Municipal Heritage Inventory, included in a Heritage Area, or on the State Register of Heritage Places. These properties have cultural heritage significance recorded in the City’s Place Record Form.

Examples of conservation works can include re-pointing, fencing repairs and re-roofing. You can also apply for funding for conservation documentation including Conservation Plans and Heritage Impact Statements.

The Heritage Assistance Fund is now open for applications until 30 September 2020. Eligible projects are entitled to up to 50% of the total cost of works, up to a maximum of $5,000, subject to assessment and budget availability.

Projects are required to be assessed and approved for funding prior to the commencement of the works. The works must be completed and a receipt provided to the City by no later than 30 May 2021.
