The Architectural Heritage Fund (AHF) which is a registered charity that promotes the conservation and regeneration of historic buildings, has announced that the next closing date for applications to its Project Development Grant scheme (up to £25,000) is the 15th February 2017.
Charities, not for profit companies, CICs, Parish and Town councils can apply for funding to assist with the costs of developing and co-ordinating a project which helps to find a sustainable use for an historic building and takes it towards the start of work on site. Applicants will be expected to cover at least 50% of the cost of the work, must have established that the end use of the building is likely to be viable and have decided to take the project forward. Applications for grants of less than £5,000 (Project Viability Grants) can be made at any time.
