National Lottery Heritage Fund launches grant funding for Resilience and Inclusion Projects
07 December 2020
The National Lottery Heritage Fund has just re-opened project funding for grants and loans of £3,000 to £250,000 with a specific focus on projects which support resilience and inclusion.
The National Lottery Heritage Fund has resumed accepting small and medium project funding applications and launched an interest free loans pilot. This funding is for projects that support organisations working with heritage to adapt and recover in our current Covid climate.
Projects seeking funding should have a focus on resilience and inclusion for groups typically under-represented in heritage.
This National Lottery funding is part of their ongoing commitment to support the UK’s heritage sector respond to the impacts of coronavirus (COVID-19), to adapt and thrive again.
The project funding – for grants between £3,000 to £100,000 – will provide financial assistance for organisations working with heritage to build their resilience.
The new interest free loans – available for sums between from £50,000 to £250,000 – are aimed at organisations looking to restart and develop their income generating potential.

The fund offers pre-application advice through project enquiry forms submitted though the online portal for those looking to apply for over £10,000 where we can give feedback on what is submitted. There isn’t a formal process for £3,000 - £10,000 (it's straight to application) but they encourage anyone who may struggle to apply for this funding or may be first time applicants to contact Shanna Lennon at the Lottery Heritage Fund.
