Public Record Office Victoria offers a range of funding to support Victorian community groups and creatives to preserve local history and heritage, and showcase the value and potential of using archival records. We also recognise the significant contribution local communities, and individuals, make in preserving Victorian history for future generations. Consider applying for funding or submitting a project for recognition via the programs below.
