Heritage Lottery Fund: Heritage Grant Scheme
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:
collections of objects, books or documents in museums, libraries or archives;
cultural traditions such as stories, festivals, crafts, music, dance and costumes;
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.
