Heritage Conservation Grants
The SA Heritage Conservation Grants Program was in operation from 2018 providing $1.25 million in funding to help undertake conservation work or documentation for South Australia’s State Heritage-listed Places. The program has helped unlock over $7.91 million of investment into South Australia’s heritage to ensure these significant places are preserved for the future.
The grant program has now ceased following the closure of Round 5 earlier this year and no further grant rounds are currently scheduled. Should you have any questions or wish to be advised if the status of the program changes, please DEW.HeritageGrants@sa.gov.au.
Funding for heritage places may still available via several other sources and we encourage the public to visit the programs listed below or contact local councils for more information.
Building Upgrade Finance
Building Upgrade Finance may be available to supplement grant funding for non-residential heritage building upgrade works where the grant funding provides only a proportion of the total cost. Building Upgrade Finance is secured against the land, via a local council charge, with repayments made through the local council rates billing process and then transferred to the financier by the local council. This form of finance is currently available to building owners in the Cities of Adelaide, Gawler, Light Regional, Marion, Onkaparinga and Whyalla and via private sector finance providers, to fund environmental and heritage works to existing non-residential buildings.
To find out more about Building Upgrade Finance, contact Corinna Pereira, Building Upgrade Finance Central Facilitator for South Australia on (08) 8203 7144 or email C.Pereira@cityofadelaide.com.au or visit the website.
