The Heritage Lottery Fund has announced major changes to the way in which churches apply for funding, including the closure of the Grants for Places of Worship scheme later this year.
The Church and Cathedrals Building Division has produced a briefing document to guide dioceses and parishes as to our position on these changes and suggested next steps. They will update this document as matters progress.
Existing applications should not be affected and the next 2 terms of the scheme will run for 2017 (deadlines May and August) however please be aware that these rounds will be overly subscribed.
Anyone concerned about an existing or intended application should contact their local HLF representative via their website https://www.hlf.org.uk/
