National Lottery Grants for Heritage to Reopen for Smaller Grant Applications

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.

Phase 1 applications will be accepted from 25 November 2020.
