The Victorian Government recognises that local and community history is an important part of Victoria’s memory. The Local History Grants Program encourages and fosters community activities that preserve, record and share the local, social and community history of Victoria and Victorians.
Local History Grants Program 2022-2023
Applications for the 2022-2023 round of the Local History Grants Program are now closed.
PROV will aim to announce successful applications early in the 2023-2024 financial year (July/August 2023). On occasion our announcements can be delayed due to events that are out of our control. If this is the case PROV will make contact with all applicants and provide an update. All applicants will receive the outcome via email (successful and unsuccessful).
If you require further information on the Local History Grants Program please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Project Completion Report and Accountability Statement
A Project Completion Report and Accountability Statement must be completed once the project has been completed. The report should provide details of the project outcomes and items or services which were purchased with the grant funds. Where your organisation has been Fund Managed or auspiced, the authorised contact officer from that organisation will be required to sign the expenditure statement.
