Lithgow Council has recently extended its application period for grants under the Lithgow Local Heritage Grant 2022 Stage 2 program. This program financially assists property owners in undertaking minor works to preserve heritage listed items.

The Lithgow Local Heritage Grants, which have been joint funded in partnership with the NSW Government, aim to improve the heritage values of local and state-listed heritage buildings and places as identified in Council’s Local Environmental Plan.

The period to submit an application has been recently extended until 2 December 2022.

Property owners who meet the assessment criteria may be eligible for up to $2,000 of grant funding on a dollar-for-dollar basis for small projects. Council is encouraging landowners of heritage-listed properties to apply for a grant to undertake minor projects.
