Heritage Lottery Fund Changes for 2018

The HLF have announced some interim changes to our grant making. As we move towards a new Strategic Funding Framework in early 2019, our Board has agreed that the next financial year 2018/19 will be a transitional year. This, along with other developments and a continued reduction in National Lottery funding, provides the context for our planning moving forward.

As you have recently had/or are in the process of receiving project enquiry advice we are aware that you may be considering an application for submission under our Heritage Grants programme and wanted to let you know that there are changes to application dates for this programme that may be applicable to you.

Applications for a grant of under £1m will be decided by the regional Committee, and applications for grants over £1m will be decided by our Board of Trustees. There are three application deadlines for decisions in the financial year 18/19 and the deadlines for Heritage Grants are available on our website at the links below. Applications under our new Strategic Framework will be open from January 2019.

North West Committee


Board of Trustees


With continued strong demand for our funding, we will be looking for best quality and applicants should expect competition for grants at every stage of the grant application process.
