Community grants for heritage restoration projects have been doubled thanks to a partnership between the City of Ballarat and the Victoria’s Heritage Restoration Fund. Previously known as the City of Ballarat Preserving Our Heritage Together Grants Program, the Ballarat Heritage Restoration Fund provides a new and improved grants program for the Ballarat community.
The fund provides financial assistance for conservation works to places of identified heritage significance within the City of Ballarat.
With two funding rounds each financial year, $300,000 will be offered over three years.
Eligible places are those privately-owned and protected under a heritage overlay in the City of Ballarat, and must conserve the overall significance of the place and involve works that are visible from a public place.
