Owners of heritage-listed places in Queensland, and not-for-profit organisations that manage such places, can now apply for the third round of heritage conservation grants.

Valued at $950,000, this latest funding package is part of the Palaszczuk Government’s $12 million Community Sustainability Action Grants Program, invested over three years to support heritage, environment and conservation projects that benefit Queensland.

Environment Minister Leeanne Enoch announced the funding package to coincide with Brisbane Open House celebrations, with individual grants of up to $40,000 available to applicants.

“So far we’ve seen $1.8 million allocated for 50 heritage conservation projects, and these grants have yielded some excellent results for Queensland’s heritage-listed places,” Ms Enoch said.

“We’ve supported heritage projects such as church restorations, hotel roof repairs, repainting warehouses and fixing building elevators, and have also developed conservation plans for sawmills, cottages, banks, and even a mud hut.”

Ms Enoch said applicants for the heritage conservation grants would be asked initially to submit an expression of interest, with those shortlisted then invited to submit a full application for consideration.

“The positive heritage outcomes we’re seeing through these grants could perhaps be on display via Brisbane Open House in the future,” she said.

“Open House is a popular world-wide concept that allows us to celebrate our city’s unique architecture and history, and is a great way to get Queenslanders more passionate about heritage, as well as future design.”

EOIs for heritage conservation grants close 8 November 2018.
