Our Grant Schemes

Our grants are an essential part of our work to protect the nation's heritage.

The grants we offer are intended for:

  • People who own or manage individual historic sites and need to repair them or understand them better
  • Local authorities, for sites and buildings in their area
  • Organisations who want to encourage better understanding, management and conservation of the historic environment in its many and varied forms.

In all cases we expect to have a dialogue with the applicant. Please note that we cannot grant-aid work which has begun before a written grant offer has been made and accepted.
