Whether you want to rescue a historic building, breathe new life into a collection or record people’s stories, Heritage Grants can help with awards over £100,000.
Not-for-profit organisations; and partnerships led by not-for-profit organisations have until the 16th August 2018 to apply for grants of up to £100,000 to support larger heritage project. 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; and histories of places and events; etc.
Applications go through a two-round process. This is so you can apply at an early stage of planning your project and get an idea of whether it’s likely to be funded. Then you can send us your detailed proposals. At the first round you can also ask for funding to develop your project.
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.
