  • Acquire new skills or knowledge to help build fundraising capacity or open up new income streams

  • Explore new business operating models or introduce new approaches to governance and leadership

  • Identify opportunities to reduce negative environmental impacts and make efficiency savings

  • Create partnerships between heritage organisations to provide training and capacity building

  • Prepare to take on new responsibility for heritage, such as through community asset transfer


Currently there are no application deadlines with applications for Resilient Heritage and applications are discussed at monthly advisory meetings within decisions for approval being made within eight weeks.
