Do you own or manage part of the historic environment? If so, English Heritage runs a number of grant schemes to assist with the cost of caring for all sorts of buildings, monuments and landscapes.  We also fund projects that help people understand and enjoy their heritage.

In these pages, you will find details of these grant schemes and how to apply for them as well as information on other funding bodies that might be able to help you.  The way we go about making grants is set out in our Third Party Investment Principles.

Funding Available

The National Heritage Protection Commissions Programme (NHPCP) funds projects that support the National Heritage Protection Plan.
