If you want to:

  • apply for a grant between £3,000 to £250,000  
  • submit a Project Enquiry for a project idea between £10,000 to £250,000 
  • submit an Expression of Interest for applications over £250,000 

To manage a funded project:


Our funding priorities in 2021 to 2022

  • 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.
  • We will only fund projects that are clearly focused on heritage – this can be national, regional or local heritage of the UK
