Heritage Grants

Heritage Grants

People from all kinds of backgrounds recognise Hobart as having a particular combination of qualities that make it a special place to live. Our heritage buildings are one of our greatest loves, part of Hobart's identity and character worth protecting.

The City of Hobart's Heritage Grant was established under the provisions of the National Trust Preservation Fund (Winding-up) Act 1999 and comes from a long term investment fund from the 1960s set up to preserve and restore historic buildings.

This grant is offered every two years.
