Grants of over £100,000 are available to support larger national, regional and local heritage projects. A large variety of projects can be funded including projects relating to:
- 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
- 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 application 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 the 31st August 2017.
