FUNDING: Architectural Heritage Fund – apply by 9 November 2020

Charities and social enterprises in England occupying historic buildings can apply for grants to develop new business plans and strategies.

This new grant programme is for individual heritage buildings in, or transferring to, community ownership. It offers support to develop projects with the potential to bring new life to high streets by creating alternative uses for redundant or underused historic buildings in town centres.

There are grants to help with assessing the viability of a project (up to £15,000), to help fund development costs (up to £100,000) or to match funds raised through Crowdfunding and Community Shares (up to £25,000).  Find the full details and application process here.
