Heritage Assistance Fund

Heritage Fund applications are open all year round. Please contact Evan Matthews on 9978 4154 for any inquiries.

Council can offer small dollar for dollar grants of up to $5000 per Heritage Item and up to $1500 for properties located within a Heritage Conservation Area under the Mosman Local Environmental Plan 2012.

Applications are assessed and dealt with throughout the year. Please note: Works which have been completed or commenced before approval of Fund application will not be accepted.

You are encouraged to apply for funding through the Mosman Heritage Fund if your property is Heritage listed or it is located within a Heritage Conservation Area and you plan to do maintenance work or to reinstate missing original features – such as fences, verandahs and decorative details.
