The National Lottery Heritage Fund has announced the launch of its new £ 7 million Heritage Impact Fund. The Heritage Impact Fund is a partnership between the Architectural Heritage Fund, Historic England, Historic Environment Scotland and Rathbone Greenbank Investments.
The fund offers tailored loan finance of between £25,000 and £500,000 for up to three years to charities, social enterprises and community businesses across the UK seeking to acquire, reuse or redevelop buildings of historical or architectural importance.
To apply, applicants must be a formally constituted and incorporated charity, community business or social enterprise whose members have limited liability.
Applicants should in the first instance speak to a member of the AHF’s Investment Team for advice and guidance. If the project is one which the AHF would like to support, applicants will be encouraged to apply and then supported throughout the application process throughout.
Applications can be made at any time.
