The Architectural Heritage Fund (AHF) is a registered charity that promotes the conservation and regeneration of historic buildings.
Charities, not for profit companies, CICs, Parish and Town councils can apply for funding to assist with the costs of developing and co-ordinating a project which helps to find a sustainable use for a historic building and takes it towards the start of work on site.
Applicants will be expected to cover at least 50% of the cost of the work, must have established that the end use of the building is likely to be viable and have decided to take the project forward.
Applications for Project Development grants of less than £5,000 or for Project Viability Grants can be made at any time.
