Transport Heritage Grants Program

ClosedGrant Closed: 9th of August 2022 - 5:00 pm Value: Up to $15,000 Run By: Royal Australian Historical Society Further Information: https://www.rahs.org.au/grants/transport-heritage-grants-program/

The Transport Heritage Grants Program is a NSW Government funded program, administered by the Royal Australian Historical Society (RAHS), and supported by Transport Heritage NSW (THNSW). The grants program aims to help the NSW community rediscover the culture, the events and the people that shaped transport in NSW over the past 160 years, as well as support the restoration and conservation of our valuable heritage assets. It runs on an annual basis to assist eligible organisations and individuals with rail, tram and bus, water based transport like ferries or industrial ships, and aeroplane (mass transit planes) based heritage activities. Any private vehicles (ie not industrial or public transport) like a car, yacht or private plane is not eligible. 

There are three grant categories under the program:

  1.  Restoration, reconstruction or preservation of a heritage transport item - This category comprises projects which directly involve the restoration and/or conservation of transport heritage assets (including buildings, rolling stock, vehicles, museum objects and collections) which are not eligible for other Government funding administered by THNSW.
  2. Education, publication or interpretation of an event, item/s or person/s that will promote heritage transport  - This category comprises projects that involve educating the community about NSW transport heritage or the operation of transport heritage passenger services.
  3. Study, consultation, report or review that will assist in managing a heritage transport place or item - This category comprises conservation management plans, statements of significance and heritage management plans

Depending on the type of project (see Grant Categories section below), the following are eligible to apply for grants:

  • Organisations: Body corporate that is a not-for-profit or charitable institution established with transport heritage and/or NSW history or heritage as one of its objective and purpose;
  • Individuals: Members of Transport Heritage NSW. For more information on becoming a member of Transport Heritage NSW, visit their website.
  • Government-owned assets on loan through THNSW are generally not eligible for the THGP – custodians should contact THNSW to discuss other available funding options
