We’ve published the first three-year delivery plan for our new 10-year strategy, Heritage 2033. It includes details about our budgets and priorities, and forthcoming changes to National Lottery Grants for Heritage.

As we transition to Heritage 2033, there will be a short period when some of our National Lottery Grants for Heritage programmes are closed for applications.

For grants from £250,000 to £10m:

  • development round applications are now temporarily closed
  • delivery round applications and Expressions of Interest are not affected and we will provide more information to applicants about transitioning to our new Heritage 2033 investment principles

For grants from £10,000 to £250,000:

  • project enquiry forms and applications are now temporarily closed.

For grant from £3,000 to £10,000:

  • 12noon on 6 December 2023: last applications for grants under £10,000

From January 2024, we’ll be open for the first applications for grants from £10,000 to £10m under Heritage 2033, with new guidance and application forms.
