Congregations caring for historic places of worship, of all faiths and denominations, can apply to HLF for funding to support a broad range of projects including capital repair. Applying for grants through their open programmes will give time-stretched applicants greater flexibility to secure the funding they need for their place of worship.
- Our Heritage (£10,000-£100,000) is a simple, faster (applications assessed within eight weeks), one stage application process and is ideal for smaller projects looking to undertake more straight-forward repairs. Apply anytime
- Heritage Grants (£100,000-£5m) is a two stage application process but gives applicants the opportunity to secure funding for more ambitious projects and allows them to undertake a development phase to help shape their proposals. Next deadline 31st March
- Resilient Heritage (£3,000-£250,000) can be used by individual organisations or partnerships to help them better manage their heritage. From developing income-generation strategies to feasibility studies in preparation for a larger Heritage Grant application – this can be a great place to start. For grants between £100,000 and £250,000 the deadline is 27 September 2018 and for grants of up to £100,000 the deadline is 18 January 2019.
