Local heritage fund
Dollar for dollar small grants are available for heritage places across Maitland with applications called for annually, with 2021 applications opening in April.
The Maitland Local Heritage Fund has been established to assist in the conservation of heritage buildings and places throughout the Maitland Local Government Area.
Small grants of up to $2,000 are available from Maitland City Council for conservation works to buildings and/or places of heritage significance. All grants are given on a dollar for dollar basis.
All grants are offered on a (minimum) dollar for dollar basis. Eligible projects are those which conserve culturally significant Aboriginal or European places.
Commercial projects could include the repainting of facades in a sympathetic colour scheme, minor restoration work to original shopfronts and reinstatement of original signwriting. Residential projects could include minor restoration work, the repainting of houses in heritage colour schemes, reinstating original fences, verandahs or other built elements.
