Grants are available to charities and not-for-profit organisations in the UK (whose main pur- poses include preserving cultural or built herit- age or conserving the natural heritage) to support the cost of acquiring historic land, buildings, works of fine and decorative art and other objects of interest which are important to the national heritage.
Heritage projects of all sizes can be supported and there is no limit to the percentage of funding that can be applied for; in very exceptional circumstances the Fund can award 100% of eligible costs. However, the fund operates as a “last resort” fund, so you must be able to prove that you have explored, or are exploring, all other possible sources of funding, including your own resources.
You can apply at any time. All decisions on NHMF awards are taken by the Board of Trustees. The board meets monthly, excluding July and August with the assessment process normally takes three months from application to decision.
