Do you own a heritage home in Ku-ring-gai in need of a little TLC? If so, you may be eligible to receive a grant from the Council to assist with conservation works.
From March to April each year Ku-ring-gai’s Heritage Home Grant program is open for applications. The program assists and encourages owners to conserve their heritage place, primarily through repairs and restoration.
Who can apply?
Owners and recognised managers of listed heritage items or contributory properties within heritage conservation areas can apply for these grants, where they have not received Heritage Home Grant funding in the past 5 years.
What sort of works are eligible?
Grants are allocated for projects that will commence and be completed in the following financial year. Funding is available for approved conservation works to original and significant fabric. This includes works to roofs, building structures, verandahs, windows, façade brickwork, fences or other significant features.
How much funding is available?
Grants are allocated on a dollar for dollar basis for a minimum of $1,000 and a maximum of $5,000. This means that if the maximum funding is granted, Council contributes $5,000 and the applicant contributes at least $5,000.
