Historic England’s National Capacity Building Programme
Grant funding is available to third sector and voluntary organisations in England for projects that strengthen the ability of the sector to reduce or avoid risk to the historic environment.
Provided by Historic England, the programme focuses on supporting work that promotes the conservation, understanding and sustainable management and development of the historic environment.
Funding is available for the following types of activity:
- National-level projects and activities that champion, support and enable third-sector organisations and voluntary groups to reduce heritage at risk and sustainably manage heritage assets by engaging more effectively in the historic environment.
- Support for statutory consultees to provide advice to local authorities to achieve the sustainable management of change in the historic environment.
- Projects that enable national third-sector organisations to reduce their reliance on public funding and to increase their effectiveness in their work with the historic environment.
Priority will be given to eligible activities and projects for which there is a lack of alternative sources of funding.
No minimum or maximum grant levels are specified. Funding will begin from 1 April 2020, for projects that are national in scope and run for a maximum of one year.
The deadline for applications is 10 November 2019.
