Heritage funding and grants

Funding options

Our heritage funding options are available under our grants section.

There are different types of funding available depending on your needs, including a local board grant programme, as well as multi-board grants, and a regional grant programme.

Regional historic heritage grants

The Regional Historic Heritage Grants Programme aims to incentivise best practice, increase understanding and encourage community involvement in the care of our historic heritage places.

Regional environment and natural heritage grants

The Regional Environment and Natural Heritage Grants Programme aims to support the protection, restoration or enhancement of Auckland's environment, with a focus on our most significant natural heritage areas.

These funds are dedicated to funding projects that are recognised as regionally significant in the heritage schedules of the Auckland Unitary Plan, including:

  • historic heritage places and areas
  • sites of significance to Mana Whenua
  • notable trees
  • contributing places within a special character area.
