Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Heritage Grants are available to owners of heritage places to assist with carrying out heritage conservation projects.

The grants aim to help owners of heritage places in maintaining and preserving their property.

Properties covered by individual Heritage Overlays or places contributory to heritage precincts under the Mornington Peninsula Planning Scheme are eligible for consideration for a grant.

Individual grants usually range from $1,000 to $2,500, but exceptions to this range may be made in special circumstances. 

Council makes the grants on a contributory basis – grants will cover up to 50% of the total costs of works.

HOW TO APPLY

Applications close Saturday 15 February 2020. Applicants will be notified within 2 - 4 weeks as to the outcome of their application.

Applicants will be awarded the grant (subject to successful finalisation of works) approximately two weeks after they advise the works have been completed, but no later than 30 June 2020.
