Local heritage fund

Dollar for dollar small grants are available for heritage places across Maitland with applications called for annually.

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 $1,000 (generally) are available from Maitland City Council for conservation works to buildings and/or places of heritage significance.

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.


Closing date for applications is 30 June 2018.

Contact Maitland City Council's Heritage Officer for more information on 02 4934 9700.

The NSW State Government also offers grants and are also available to assist with heritage projects.
