Accessing the application portal

The resumption of project funding marks a return to our core business, but it is not a return to ‘business as usual’.
  • We are prioritising six outcomes in 2021-22 for heritage projects to respond to the COVID-19 context: skills and jobs, inclusion, organisational resilience, better places, the economy and wellbeing.
  • We also expect all projects to demonstrate that they are building long-term environmental sustainability and inclusion into their plans.
  • Projects don't have to meet all priority outcomes.
  • The National Lottery Grants for Heritage funding process - application, award and monitoring - remains the same.

You can access our application portal to:

  • manage existing grants
  • submit an enquiry for National Lottery Grants for Heritage
  • set up your payment account for Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage grants
