The Heritage Lottery Fund has announced that the next application deadline for round 1 of its Landscape Partnerships Programme is the 1st June 2018.
The Landscape Partnerships grant programme supports partnerships which aim to conserve the distinctive character of rural and rural-urban transition areas in the UK. Grants of between £100,000 and £3,000,000 are available. The fund is open to not-for profit organisations and partnerships led by not-for profit organisations.
Prior to submitting an application, the applicant must identify an area of land that has a distinctive landscape character, recognised and valued by local people. Each scheme is based around a portfolio of smaller projects, which together provide a varied package of benefits to an area, its communities and visitors.
