Heritage Grants

Mornington Peninsula Heritage grants application process is now open

Mornington Peninsula Shire funds a small grants program each year, to assist owners of heritage places to carry out heritage conservation projects undertaken to appropriate heritage standards.  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; generally, any grant will not exceed 50 per cent of the total value of any works. Eligible properties are those covered by an individual Heritage Overlay, or that are significant or contributory to heritage precincts, under the Mornington Peninsula Planning Scheme.

Heritage grant applications for this financial year will be open until 15 February 2020. You need to be sure that the works will be finished by 30 May 2020 so that the grants can be paid by 30 June 2020 (allocated funds will not be carried through to the following financial year).

There are two ways to apply:
