Community Heritage Grants

The Community Heritage Grants (CHG) program aims to preserve and provide access to locally held, nationally significant cultural heritage collections across Australia.

The CHG program provides cash grants of up to $15,000 to assist not-for-profit community organisations such as historical societies, museums, public libraries, archives, galleries and Indigenous and migrant community groups to document, preserve, digitise and curate their collections and collection management training through community based workshops.

The CHG program is jointly funded by the Ministry for the Arts, the National Library of Australia, the National Archives of Australia, the National Museum of Australia and the National Film and Sound Archive.

The CHG program is administered by the National Library of Australia.
