The Central Geelong Heritage Fund (formerly known as the Major Heritage Fund) offers grants to undertake restoration works to eligible commercial heritage buildings in Central Geelong.
The program has a key focus on heritage restoration projects which have been identified through heritage studies and/or evidence to support their restoration, and will benefit the commercial streetscapes in Central Geelong.
Please see further details about eligibility requirements in the grant
guidelines (the guidelines on this site relate to the rounds that are now
closed - updated guidelines will be available soon).
Geelong council has agreed to temporarily suspend its 2020-21 Community Grants
program, including the Central Geelong Heritage Fund and conduct a review, aiming to re-tailor the funding towards grants streams that will
provide maximum support in the region’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Details of the revised 2020-21 grants program will be shared once the review is
complete and the council has approved any proposed changes to the distribution
The council has also agreed to review applications for remaining funding in the
2019-20 community grants program, to assess which proposals could and could not
go ahead in the current environment.
Recommendations for Round 2 2019-20 funding were endorsed at the council meeting of 26 May 2020.
A list of allocations can be viewed on this page - refer to the 'Related Documents' title below.
