As highlighted in our Community Plan we are committed to supporting the development of activities that celebrate the history, art, and culture of the Barossa and its people. One way we are doing this is through our Heritage Grants program.
If you own a state heritage property or if your property is in a state heritage area of local heritage significance or a contributory item listed in our Development Plan, you may be eligible to receive assistance with costs associated with maintenance conservation works, minor alterations, or additions. For more information to see if you're eligible, refer to the Heritage Grants Guidelines for further information.
Heritage Grant applications are welcome from community groups, church bodies, and individuals. Applications are assessed annually by the Community Assistance Scheme Committee (CASC) at the annual committee meeting in November.
Heritage Grants are provided to the owner(s) of a property that is of Local Heritage significance or a contributory place as listed within The Barossa Council Development Plan. Community groups, church bodies, and individuals can apply.
Financial incentives may be provided for maintenance improvement works that exceed the owner(s) funding capability. Projects should be essential to the conservation value of the property or prevent further deterioration.
Any application for funding that is outside the scope of the Guidelines will be assessed by the Community Assistance Scheme Committee in the first instance, with its recommendation and report subsequently presented to the next Council Meeting for decision.
Applications for Heritage Grants can be submitted at any time, but will only be considered by the Community Assistance Scheme Committee on an annual basis at the November meeting of the Committee.
Applications close in September each year and must be completed using the Heritage Grant Application Form.
