The Architectural Heritage Fund (AHF) has published the 2018 deadlines for not-for profit organisations seeking a Project Development Grant.
The Architectural Heritage Fund (AHF) is an independent charity that offers grants to help it deliver its overall strategic objectives and outcomes for heritage and communities.
AHF offers grants of up to £25,000 to registered charities and social enterprises in the UK that need financial assistance to cover some of the costs of developing and co-ordinating a building project and taking it towards the start of work on site.
The grants are intended to support project development costs only and not for on-site capital works. Funding is available for any work that is essential for taking the project forward towards the goal of revitalising an historic building.
Applicants must explain how a particular piece of work or activity will enable this. Examples of eligible costs include:
Applicants are generally expected to cover at least 50% of the cost of the work.
The 2018 deadlines for applications requesting more than £5,000 are 16 February, 11 May, 24 August, and 2 November 2018.
