The Development Grants Programme is currently closed

The Project Development grant programme is a pilot grant programme offering awards up to £10,000 to support churches to become more sustainable through the diagnosis of issues affecting the church, by testing the viability of proposed solutions to improve sustainability, and through development of guiding policies and plans that will be implemented through an application to the Heritage Lottery Fund, or other large church heritage funders.

You can find out more about our Project Development Grants by watching the video below.

For last year's guidance notes (this is currently being revised) containing the eligibility and scoring criteria and priorities, follow the link below. The online application form and revised guidance should be available again by early November, with the first deadline for applications on 10 January 2018 and a decision in March 2018.
