The Architectural Heritage Fund - Project Development Grant
The Project Development Grant (PDG) scheme is intended to assist an organisation to cover some of the costs of developing and coordinating a project and taking it towards the start of work on site.
The AHF promotes the conservation and sustainable reuse of historic buildings for the benefit of communities across the UK, particularly in economically disadvantaged areas. They give priority to projects involving historic buildings that have statutory protection and at risk. They will consider applications for unlisted buildings if you can show that they are highly valued as heritage assets by the local community.
Priority is given to projects that have the potential to make a significant positive social impact in disadvantaged areas. They want to help build stronger and more cohesive communities by supporting projects that will create employment, training and/or volunteering opportunities both during the project’s development and in the years following completion.
