HLF anniversaries fund opens

Heritage Lottery Fund has opened the £10 million anniversaries fund for applications.

The HLF has confirmed that its £10 million anniversaries funding is now fully open for business and is being supported by on-line guidance and expert advice for all potential applicants who have a relevant project in mind.

HLF announced last year that it was to set aside at least £10 million over the next four years to fund projects marking some of the UK’s most important anniversaries and commemorative events. The money will be invested to ensure that those moments which form a central part of our national history are commemorated and understood.

Projects of all sizes can apply from smaller grants of a few thousand pounds up to grants over £2 million.
