Guidelines for Applicants 

Blue Mountains City Council and the NSW Government are jointly funding the Blue Mountains Local Heritage Assistance Fund 2019–2021. The Fund provides dollar for dollar grant funding of up to $2,000 to support minor conservation works to heritage properties in the Blue Mountains Local Government Area.

The Blue Mountains Local Heritage Assistance Fund recognises the importance of conserving, protecting and caring for local heritage listed buildings within the Blue Mountains.

In the second year of the program, 2020-21, funding is directed towards contributory buildings; or significant buildings that contribute towards the streetscape values in newly listed Heritage Conservation Areas, that were previously known as ‘Period Housing Areas’. Applications for minor works to properties within existing Heritage Conservation Areas will also be considered.

Contributory buildings make an important contribution to the character and significance of a heritage conservation area, for example they may have been built during a key development period, or have contributory aesthetic or representative values.

Applications for 2020/21 are now open and will close on Wednesday, 21 October 2020.
