National Lottery Grants for Heritage – £3,000 to £10,000
Using money raised by the National Lottery, the National Lottery Heritage Fund inspires, leads and resources the UK’s heritage to create positive and lasting change for people and communities, now and for the future.
National Lottery Grants for Heritage is our open programme for all types of heritage projects in the UK.
This guidance will tell you more about the programme and the types of project we can fund.
Our funding priorities
To support the sector in its continued recovery from the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and through the cost of living crisis, we are prioritising heritage projects that:
- promote inclusion and involve a wider range of people (a mandatory outcome)
- 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
Projects must achieve at least our inclusion outcome. In addition to our outcomes, all projects must also consider long-term environmental sustainability.
Please thoroughly read our supplementary document, Priorities for National Lottery Grants for Heritage. This is a formal part of the programme guidance until further notice.
