Living Heritage Grants

The Living Heritage Grants Program is a funding program provided from Heritage Victoria within Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning. The funding targets State-listed heritage places in urgent need of repair and thereby supports the ongoing and sustainable use of significant heritage assets.
