Do you own or manage a historic place? If so, English Heritage runs a number of grant schemes to help with the cost of caring for all sorts of buildings, monuments and landscapes. We also fund projects that help people to 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 award grants is set out in our Third Party Investment Principles.


Find out which grant schemes we offer, including some specifically for local authorities.
