Heritage Lottery Fund: Seeking Applications for Heritage Grants Program

Deadline: 31 August 2017

Heritage Lottery Fund is seeking applications for its Heritage Grants program that is open for any type of project related to the national, regional or local heritage in the UK.

Funding Information

  • Applicants can apply for a grant of more than £100,000.
  • The application process is in two rounds.


  • The program fund projects that make a lasting difference for heritage, people and communities in the UK.
  • The focus of the project will be on the work or activity that:
    • is defined at the outset;
    • has not yet started;
    • will take no more than five years to complete;
    • will contribute to achieving the outcomes they describe.
  • The assessment process is competitive and they cannot fund all of the good-quality applications that they receive. As a guide, the following are unlikely to win support:
    • projects outside of the UK;
    • projects where the main focus is meeting applicant’s legal and/or statutory responsibilities, such as the requirements of the Equality Act 2010;
    • promoting the cause or beliefs of political and faith organizations.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Under this programme, the Heritage Lottery Fund will consider applications from:
    • not-for-profit organizations;
    • partnerships led by not-for-profit organizations.
  • If applicants are applying as a partnership, applicants will need to nominate a lead applicant. The lead applicant should provide a signed partnership agreement showing the involvement of each partner and how the project will be managed.
  • If private owners or for-profit organizations are involved in a project, the fund expects public benefit to be greater than private gain.

Applicants can apply via given website.
