Historical Organisation Assistance Grant Program

The Historical Organisation Assistance Grant Program provides funding over three years to help cultural heritage and historical organisations to operate and maintain their facilities.

Brisbane City Council recognises the significant contributions cultural heritage and historical organisations make in bringing Brisbane’s stories to life.

This grant provides funding to Brisbane-based cultural heritage and historical organisations to:

  • continue to operate and grow
  • build stronger, more resilient organisations to achieve long-term sustainability
  • increase the skills and capacity of organisations and their staff
  • preserve Brisbane’s cultural heritage and history and ensure it remains accessible for the Brisbane community.

Organisations may apply for between $2000 and $10,000 per annum for three years.
