We have introduced a new service that is clearer and simpler to use.
Page updated: 20 July 2021
Our application portal is being replaced by a new and improved service. Work to move projects across to this service will continue until autumn 2021.
Up-to-date technology and streamlined design make it simpler to apply for and manage funding. It also supports our staff to provide a better service to applicants and the heritage organisations we fund.
Our fundamental grant-giving process remains the same.
A better experience
Benefits of the new service include:
- clear information and easy-to-follow actions
- mobile and tablet-friendly technology
- faster page load times
- accessible and consistent design
- a smoother application process, only asking for the information we need
- hints and guidance incorporated on the application form
- an improvement to the way we gather equality monitoring data, so we are better able to manage and track the diversity of our grant giving
Our new service, 'Get funding for a heritage project' has now replaced the application portal for all new applications.
Applications and projects in progress
If you have an active project with us, and managing it through the outgoing portal, we will be in touch to tell you when your information will be migrated to the new service, when you can start using it, and whether you need to take any other action.
If you have an active project with us, and managing it through the new portal, you have no further action and should continue to manage your project here.
In the middle of an application?
If you're partway through filling out – but have not yet submitted – an application in the old portal, when you move over to the new service you'll need to re-enter the information. You'll have read-only access to your unsubmitted application on the portal. No information will be lost while you transfer.
If your project has completed and you still have information on the old application portal, you will not be able to access it after we retire that system in autumn 2021.
If you want to keep your information, please save a copy elsewhere as soon as possible.
