The Living Heritage Grants Program is providing $36.5 million over four years to protect and revitalise the state’s most important heritage places.
The program is the largest government investment in the conservation and activation of heritage assets in Victorian history.
Round 2 competitive grants stream funding of over $2.5 million was recently awarded, which will support 22 projects in 2017/18. The funded projects include restoration works to the Camperdown Clock Tower, the Healesville Railway Water Tower and Crane, and the Former Ballarat RAAF Base.

Heritage plays a large part in the liveability of Victoria and provides a cultural and physical link to understanding the past. It also contributes approximately $2.4 billion towards Victoria’s booming tourism industry, including the support of 184,800 jobs.
