The Architectural Heritage Fund (AHF) which supports the conservation and regeneration of historic buildings, has announced that the next closing date for applications to its Project Development Grant scheme (up to £30,000) is 9am the 28th August 2018.
Charities, not for profit companies, CICs, Parish and Town councils can apply for funding to assist with the costs of developing and coordinating a project which helps to find a sustainable use for an historic building and takes it towards the start of work on site.
The grants are intended to support project development costs only and not for on-site capital works. The AHF also makes:
- Project Viability Grants (PVG) of up to £7,500 to fund studies to look at potential uses for a building and at its current condition.
- Cywaith Legacy Fund of up to £30,000 which is open to community-led organisations operating Gwynedd, Anglesey and Conwy to find sustainable new uses for historic buildings.
- Scottish Community Development Grant (SCDG) which provides grants of up to £50,000 for community led projects
