If you own a State Heritage Place or a place in a State Heritage Area and are planning a conservation project that will help to conserve or protect significant fabric or heritage values, you may be eligible to receive a SA heritage grant. As well as the urgency and importance of conservation work, other aspects that may be considered when allocating funding includes the extent to which the project contributes to:

  • the community – works with ‘public good’ component
  • heritage tourism – works that will result in increased visitation of a Place or Area
  • heritage trades and training – works that use traditional trades and skills and/or support specialised training
  • adaptive reuse – conservation works that support compatible new uses or continued use of a Place
  • places at risk – works to prevent further deterioration and conserve fabric at risk
  • remote and very remote places – works that support the regions.
