Heritage Lottery Funding for Places of Worship

HLF_LogoThe HLF have launched a new programme of grants for places of worship.

Congregations caring for historic places of worship, of all faiths and denominations, can apply to HLF for funding to support a broad range of projects including capital repair.

Relevant programmes:

  • Our Heritage (£10,000-£100,000) can be used to support a great range of projects and organisations, including those who want to repair buildings. The programme is single round. We aim to respond to your application in around eight weeks
  • Heritage Grants (£100,000-£5m) can support all types and scales of project. The two-round structure means we can support you in both developing and delivering your proposals
  • Resilient Heritage (£3,000-£250,000) can be used by individual organisations or partnerships to help them better manage their heritage. From developing income-generation strategies to feasibility studies in preparation for a larger Heritage Grant application – this can be a great place to start

As well as providing their own grants, the Suffolk Historic Churches Trust can also provide advice on other grant making bodies here or call 01787 883884.
