AHF Announces 2017 Deadlines for Project Development Grants

The Architectural Heritage Fund (AHF) has announced the 2017 deadlines for applications to the Projects Development Grants programme which is available to not-for-profit groups in the UK.

The Architectural Heritage Fund (AHF) is an independent charity that was established to encourage and support the work of registered charities and constituted not-for-profit organisations that is dedicated to the preservation and renewal of buildings of architectural and historic significance which have failed to find a viable re-use on the open market.

Grants of up to 25,000 are available for project development costs only and not for on-site capital works. Funding is available for any work that is essential for taking the project forward towards the goal of revitalising an historic building. Applicants must explain how a particular piece of work or activity will enable this. Examples of eligible costs include:

  • The employment of a project co-ordinator, either someone appointed externally on a consultancy basis or an existing employee(s) working additional hours or on this specific project.
  • Fees for consultants needed to help progress the organisation's plans, such as architect, quantity surveyor, structural engineer, mechanical and electrical engineer.
  • Property valuation by a RICS registered valuer.
  • Fundraising consultants.
  • Business planning consultants.
  • Costs associated with developing a bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund or other capital funders, such as Activity Plan, Training Plan, Conservation Management Plan.
  • Costs of community engagement work, such as pop-up events, consultations.
  • Legal costs where this is critical in establishing ownership or the viability of proposed uses, such as advice on restrictive covenants, or for advice on governance, such as to develop the organisation's constitutional model to best enable it to take the project forward.
  • VAT costs that cannot be reclaimed.

Organisation overheads/administration costs.

Applicants are generally expected to cover at least 50% of the cost of the work.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to discuss any potential application with the relevant Support Officer in their area before submitting an application.

The 2016/2017 deadlines are 26 October 2016, 15 February 2017, 10 May 2017, 16 August 2017, and 1 November 2017.
