National Lottery Heritage Fund
The Trustees of the National Heritage Memorial Fund (NHMFTrustees of the National Heritage Memorial Fund – see HLF), known as the National Lottery Heritage Fund and previously the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLFHeritage Lottery Fund (National Lottery Heritage Fund from 2019)), distribute money raised by the Lottery that is allocated to heritage. The Fund is a non-departmental public body accountable to Parliament via the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMSDepartment for Culture, Media and Sport). It is the largest dedicated funder of heritage in the UK, distributing over £400 million each year with individual grants upwards from £3,000.
Typically grants are in the form of match funding. These require the applicant provides a proportion of the project cost from the applicant’s own funds or raised by them in the form of other grants and donations. This can also include an in-kind amount, costed for volunteer hours that will be worked on that project.
