The Grants for Heritage funding programme offers:
  • Grants from £3,000 to £10,000.
  • Grants from £10,000 to £250,000.
  • Grants from £250,000 to £5 million.

Projects should aim to improve the condition of heritage; allow for heritage to be identified and better explained; and ensure that people have learned about local heritage, leading to changes in ideas and actions. There is a focus on landscape and nature, and community heritage.

Depending on the amount sought, applications will be accepted from the following types of organisation across the UK:
  • Charities, trusts and charitable incorporated organisations.
  • Community and voluntary groups.
  • Community/parish councils.
  • Community interest companies.
  • Faith-based or church organisations.
  • Local authorities.
  • Other public sector organisations.
  • Private owners of heritage (for example, individuals and commercial organisations).
  • Partnerships of multiple organisations.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, funding should fulfil at least one of the following outcomes:
  • A wider range of people will be involved in heritage.
  • The funded organisation will be more resilient.
  • People will have improved wellbeing.
  • People will have developed skills.
  • The local area will be a better place to live, work or visit.
  • The local economy will be boosted.

There are no deadlines for applications for under £250,000. Decisions are usually conveyed within eight weeks of receipt of application and support documents.

The next deadline for applications exceeding £250,000 is noon on 24 February 2022.
