Architectural Heritage Fund – Project Development Grants
The Architectural Heritage Fund (AHF) is currently accepting applications for grants of up to £25,000 from registered charities and social enterprises in the UK that need some support to cover some of the costs of developing and co-ordinating a building project and taking it towards the start of work on site.
The grants are intended to support project development costs only and not for on-site capital works.
Funding is available for any work that is essential for taking the project forward towards the goal of revitalising an historic building. Applicants must explain how a particular piece of work or activity will enable this.
Applicants are generally expected to cover at least 50 per cent of the cost of the work.
Applications for grants of less than £5,000 can be made at any time and with a decision typically made within six weeks.
Applications for grants of £5,000 or more are considered at quarterly intervals.
The next deadline for applications requesting between £5,000 and £25,000 is 1 November 2017 to be considered at the mid December Council meeting.
