  • Heritage Lottery Fund: Heritage Grant Scheme

    Created: 12/04/2017

    Grants of over £100,000 are available to support a wide variety of larger heritage projects. The funding which is being made available through the Heritage Lottery Fund's Heritage Grant Scheme is available to not-for-profit organisations; and partnerships led by not-for-profit organisations for any project relating to national, regional and local heritage.

    This can include for example:

    • archaeological sites;
    • collections of objects, books or documents in museums, libraries or archives;
    • cultural traditions such as stories, festivals, crafts, music, dance and costumes;
    • historic buildings;
    • histories of people and communities; and
    • histories of places and events; etc.

    Projects supported in the past include a grant of £730,000 to the Richmondshire Building Preservation Trust Limited to transform Richmond Station in North Yorkshire into a self-sustaining heritage and leisure attraction for the local community.

    Heritage Grants applications go through a two-round process. This is so that organisations can apply at an early stage of planning their project and get an idea of whether they have a good chance of getting a grant before they send a proposal in greater detail.

    The next closing date for applications is Thursday 15 June 2017.
