Grants Given

Our grants help owners look after some of the most important buildings, monuments and designed landscapes in the country. We also help fund research so we can understand and care for the historic environment better.

We also contribute to the costs of some organisations working to care for the historic environment, boosting the impact of their work and helping to get more people involved in it.

Last year we spent £19.37 million across our grant schemes. This was spread across 391 grant offers which varied in amounts depending on the level of financial commitment required for each project. These projects can take from a few months to several years to complete.
