Historic England – Heritage Protection Commissions and Capacity Building Programme

Posted in Funding

The programme offers funding for strategic research that will help Historic England to know what the historic environment comprises, which aspects of it are the most significant, and what innovations in science and approach will help Historic England to look after it for the future.

The funding is for projects which develop sector capacity, capability and resilience, and/or help more diverse people engage with heritage and the historic environment.

Projects must be rooted in, and about, place to reflect Historic England’s statutory remit. There are three ways to apply for funding.

  • Applications to the Open Proposal Programme can be made at any time. Guidance notes can be found on the Historic England website.
  • Calls for Proposals, where the subject for grant aid is specifically defined but where the applicant’s own creativity and expertise shape their application, may be added throughout the year. Applicants should check regularly check the Historic England website.
  • Tender Opportunities are for very specific requirements and new opportunities may be offered throughout the year.
