Our Heritage

Grants from £10,000 to £100,000
Whichever part of the UK's heritage you want to explore, we're here to help with grants of £10,000–£100,000.

An Our Heritage grant can help you protect and share the heritage you care about. Your project could focus on anything from personal memories and cultural traditions to archaeological sites, museum collections and rare wildlife.

Under Our Heritage we can accept applications from not-for-profit organisations, private owners of heritage and partnerships. If individuals or for-profit organisations are involved, the public benefit from the project must be greater than any private gain.

More about this grant programme

We’re passionate about the difference our projects make for heritage, people and communities. We take account of the outcomes your project will achieve in our assessment. You can read about these in the application guidance.

We will assess your application within eight weeks.

When you need to apply

There are no application deadlines for this programme – apply anytime. Your application will be discussed at a monthly advisory meeting at your local Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) office. Following this meeting, a decision on your application will be made by the Head of your local HLF office.
