Grants for heritage
Applications are open for National Lottery Grants for Heritage from £3,000 to £5million.
We are prioritising six outcomes for heritage projects to respond to the COVID-19 context: skills and jobs, inclusion, organisational resilience, better places, the economy and wellbeing.
We are fully operational and open for business, but we are conducting much of our day-to-day business remotely.
This means we are unable to access our post. In the interim, please send any items via email to your contact or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
