Accessing the application portal

Applications for project funding are open 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.
