Funding for Large Heritage Projects – 16th August 2018 (UK)

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:

  • Archaeological sites; 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 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 16th August 2018.
