Architectural Heritage Fund

The Architectural Heritage Fund supports projects that will contribute to the transformation of high streets and town centres in England helping them become thriving places, strengthening local communities and encouraging local economies to prosper.

It is part of a wider initiative to revive heritage high streets in England, alongside Historic England’s High Streets Heritage Action ZonesTogether, these programmes form part of the Future High Streets Fund, administered by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.

The programme is for individual heritage buildings in, or transferring to, community ownership. We will support charities and social enterprises to develop projects with the potential to bring new life to high streets by creating alternative uses for redundant or underused historic buildings in town centres.

What types of funding are available and when can I apply?

The AHF can provide grants to help with assessing the viability of a project, or to help fund development costs or to match funds raised through Crowdfunding and Community Shares. We will also provide a small number of capital (delivery) grants for Transformational Projects.

  • Project Viability Grants: up to £15,000, for early viability and feasibility work, open now for applications.

  • Project Development Grants: up to £100,000, for capital project development costs, open now for applications.

  • Crowdfunding Challenge Grants: up to £25,000, to match fund crowdfunding campaigns, open now for applications. Please note the additional guidance and supplementary questions.

  • Transformational Project Grants: up to £350,000, for a decision in June.

  • Community Shares Booster Grants: Apply here

Which areas will be eligible?

The programme will focus on places where strategic regeneration programmes are planned or are already underway. This includes Heritage Action Zones or places that have secured funding through the Future High Streets Fund. Historic building projects located within other area-based regeneration programmes, such as Townscape Heritage areas or where an applicant can demonstrate a significant community-led strategic approach is in place, will also be considered. Projects should not be standalone but sit within a wider initiative to regenerate and bring a new purpose to the immediate surrounding area.
