Heritage Enterprise Programme
The Heritage Lottery Fund has announced that its £125 million Heritage Enterprise grants programme is open for applications.
The scheme aims to support not-for-profit organisations to help them work in partnership with the private sector in the restoration of unused historic building and sites and unlock their economic potential. The programme is designed to address market failure, where historic buildings have failed to attract enough investment because the cost of their repair has not been commercially viable for private developers. Under the programme two types of grants are available:
- Grants of between £100,000 and under £2 million
- Grants of between £2million and £5million.
For grant requests of over £100,000 and under £2million decisions are made every three months. For grant requests of between £2 million and up to £5 million the next closing date for applications is the 7th February 2014.
