Our funding

We have halted all new National Lottery Grants for Heritage until 2021. This is so we can work closely with heritage organisations to help them through the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Find all information about applying for funding, read our good practice guidance and discover what we expect from all of the projects we fund.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We have a range of recovery funding and other support available to help your heritage organisation get through the COVID-19 crisis.


We are offering training and free resources to help all heritage organisations thrive in the digital era through our Digital Skills for Heritage initiative.

Advice: Understanding our licence requirement

At The National Lottery Heritage Fund, we are committed to ensuring the greatest possible public, social and economic benefit from the work we fund. Today (16 September) we are updating our licencing requirements to better support that. Use of digital technologies to create opportunities to connect

Digital Skills for Heritage

Digital Skills for Heritage is an ambitious two-year initiative designed to raise digital skills and confidence across the whole UK heritage sector.

Tips for promoting your project

Getting the media to talk about your project is a great way of letting people know what you are doing with your grant. It also shows everyone how National Lottery players' money is being used.
