Third Party Grants


This report assesses how third party grants and community grants are being used within the Landscape Partnership programme and Heritage Grants programme. The overall purpose was to explore what works and what doesn’t and to understand why third party and community grants might be beneficial.

Third party grants are payments made by the scheme to third parties (either organisations or individuals such as landowners) to enable them to deliver works, usually on their own land, in line with the scheme’s aims (such as improving the condition of an area of land for biodiversity).

Community grants are a ring-fenced sum of money used to fund projects, led by community groups, and that contribute to the aims of the scheme.

The research findings will be used to inform HLF's future practice and strategies.
