The Architectural Heritage Fund (AHF) has announced a call for applications for its Grant Programme to help with assessing the viability of a project, or to help fund development costs.
- Project Viability Grant (PVG): Project Viability Grants (PVG) are to fund studies to look at potential uses for a building and at its current condition, and produce a Viability Report to a standard template. Successful completion of this will be used to judge whether applicants can then apply for the AHF’s Project Development Grant funding, and can be used to secure further funding elsewhere. This grant is administered on a rolling basis. They aim to let you know whether you have been successful within six weeks.
- Project Development Grant (PDG): The Project Development Grant (PDG) scheme is intended to assist an organisation to cover some of the costs of developing and co-ordinating a project and taking it towards the start of work on site.
- Project Viability Grant (PVG): Maximum £7,500
- Project Development Grant (PDG): Maximum £15,000
Wherever you are in the UK, your organisation must be one of the following not-for-private-profit organisations or lowest tiers of local government:
- Unincorporated organisations that are intending to incorporate (for Project Viability Grants only)
- Charitable Incorporated Organisations (CIOs or SCIOs)
- Charitable Companies Limited by Guarantee
