National Lottery Grants for Heritage to Reopen for Smaller Grant Applications

Applications open on 25 November for small to medium-sized grants to support heritage sector organisations across the UK with a focus on projects that emphasis organisational resilience and inclusion.

The grants programme was not due to reopen until 2021, but the National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF) has announced that a phased reopening of project funding will begin in late November 2020:

  • Phase 1 – applications for grants from £3,000-£10,000 and £10,000-£100,000 will be accepted starting from 25 November 2020. This will provide some much-needed financial assistance, particularly to those heritage sector organisations who have, so far, been unable to access COVID-19 emergency funds. NLHF will be looking for projects with a particular emphasis on organisational resilience and inclusion.
  • Phase 2 – applications for grants from £100,000-£250,000 and £250,000-£5 million will be accepted starting from 8 February 2021. This will mark a return to NLHF’s core business, but NLHF will not be returning to pre-COVID-19 “business as usual” in its approach.

Priority will be given to projects that:

  • Boost the local economy
  • Provide job creation and encourage skills development
  • Support local health and wellbeing
  • Encourage rebuilding community cohesion

Project partners must demonstrate that they are building long-term environmental sustainability and inclusion into their plans.

Phase 1 will be open to applications from:

  • Non-profits and partnerships led by non-profit organisations for grants of £3,000 to £5 million.
  • Private owners of heritage for grants of up to £100,000.

Phase 1 applications will be accepted from 25 November 2020. Click here for more information.
