Our Heritage 

The Our Heritage programme is for any type of project related to national, regional or local heritage in the UK. You can apply for a grant of more than £10,000 and up to £100,000.

Under this programme, we fund applications from not-for-profit organisations, private owners of heritage (including individuals and for-profit organisations) and partnerships.

You can read more about Our Heritage in the application guidance. Your application will have a better chance of success if you read this thoroughly before you apply.

Please note that we have updated our application guidance. This includes new information about staff costs in Section 5: Project costs and applies to all applications submitted from 6 December 2013 onwards.

Application process 

Our Heritage is a rolling programme, meaning you can apply anytime. We will assess your application in eight weeks and then make a decision. Please contact your local team to find out when decisions are made.

We recommend that you send us a project enquiry form before you apply. Register a project enquiry.
