- The Maintenance Grant Programme has been designed to help churches, chapels and meeting houses act on small, urgent repairs issues, perhaps identified in a recent QIR or condition report. Grants of £500 to £3,000 towards projects under £10,000 including VAT. To apply, we require 2 quotes to be in place, and 50% match funding. We are unable to fund work that has started before the application has been submitted but could fund projects where work starts before the grant decision date in July, provided applicants demonstrate why our grant is needed. The deadline is 23 May. To read the guidance note and to apply, visit the website here.
- Project Development Grant programme which is intended to help support churches get to RIBA planning stage 1, at which point approaches can be made to major heritage funders. The sorts of projects we have supported to date include feasibility studies, in depth structural survey reports and options appraisals. Grants can be up to £10,000, 50% funds must be in place. The deadline is 25 April.
