Fund description:

The Architectural Heritage Fund can give advice, grants and loans to help registered charities and not-for-profit groups find new sustainable uses for the historic buildings in the community.

  • Project Viability Grants – up to £5,000 – are to fund short studies to look at potential uses for a building and at its current condition.
  • Project Development Grants – up to £25,000 – are intended to assist an organisation to cover some of the costs of developing and co-ordinating a project and taking it towards the start of work on site

For both grant schemes, applicants are generally expected to cover at least 50% of the cost of the work.

Applications for grants up to £5,000 can be made at any time; there are quarterly deadlines for applications for grants over £5,000.
