Victorian Local History Grants Program

The Local History Grants Program is administered by Public Record Office Victoria on behalf of the State Government of Victoria. The program encourages and fosters community activities that preserve, record and share the local, social and community history of Victoria and Victorians. Small grants of up to $15,000 are made for the preservation and sharing of Victorian history by a variety of local community based organisations interested in telling the stories from their own communities, preserving their collections and increasing opportunities for the public to engage with the past. Note that Universities can partner with community organisations to propose projects for funding under this scheme. Applications close Wednesday 31 January 2018.
