The Architectural Heritage Fund (AHF) promotes the conservation and regeneration of historic buildings in the UK and is now open to applications.
Grants and low interest working capital loans are available to registered charities and constituted not for profit organisations. The AHF can provide grants to help with assessing the viability of a project, or to fund development costs. Currently two types of grants are on offer, these are:
- Project Viability Grants of up to £5,000 are available to fund short studies to look at potential uses for a building and at its current condition. This grant is administered on a rolling basis.
- Project Development Grant funding of up to £25,000 to assist an organisation to cover some of the costs of developing and co-ordinating a project and taking it towards the start of work on site. Applications are considered at quarterly meetings.
The next application deadline for Project Development Grants is the 16th February 2018.
