National Lottery Grants for Heritage


Grants for Heritage can fund projects that connect people and communities to the national, regional and local heritage of the UK.

All projects should achieve their inclusion outcome, ‘a wider range of people will be involved in heritage’. Between April 2021 to March 2022, they will prioritise heritage projects that:

  • boost the local economy
  • encourage skills development and job creation
  • support wellbeing
  • create better places to live, work and visit
  • improve the resilience of organisations working in heritage

Applications should include Covid-19 considerations and potential risks your project might face as a result of the pandemic.
