The final deadline for applications to the Sharing Heritage Programme is the 18th January 2019 as the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) will be launching its new Funding Framework early in 2019.
Through the programme, registered charities, community groups and other not for profit and statutory organisations can apply for grants of between £3,000 and £10,000 for projects that help local people discover and share their local heritage. This can include:
- Guides or trails
- Packs for schools; etc.
HLF particularly wants to support fun, interesting, rewarding projects and activities that involve a wide range of volunteering roles. Up to 100% funding is available, however all applicants are encouraged to provide some match funding in cash or in kind which may be as volunteer time.
