Priorities for National Lottery Grants for Heritage 2021-22

We're backing the UK's heritage to adapt and thrive again.

UK heritage is facing its gravest threat since the Second World War. The risks to heritage sites, attractions and organisations from a sudden and dramatic loss of income as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic have put the heritage and visitor economy in crisis, requiring an urgent response.

Find out more about our focus on supporting the sector to strengthen its recovery in the medium term and to build back for positive change across the UK’s heritage.


What level of grant are you interested in?

Some heritage projects seek to achieve economic growth by investing in heritage. We call these ‘heritage enterprise’ projects. Heritage enterprise applications also must demonstrate how they meet our priority outcomes 2021-22.
