The Townscape Heritage Initiative is a Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) grant giving programme that supports schemes to regenerate the historic environment in towns and cities across the United Kingdom.
The programme is designed to address problems in areas of particular social and economic need. The scheme is open to single organisations (such as Local Authorities) or partnerships of not for profit organisations and provides grants of between £100,000 and £2 million.
If applicants receive a first-round pass, they will need to develop the scheme further within a 12-month development phase and then send a detailed second-round submission. The second round is not competitive; a grant will be offered to the applicant if it meets the HLF’s criteria and priorities.
The next closing date for stage 1 applications to the Heritage Lottery Fund’s (HLF) Townscape Heritage Initiative is 12 noon on the 1st September 2016. Second-round applications can be submitted up to 12 months after first-round approval.
