The National Lottery Heritage Fund in Wales and Cadw have teamed up to offer the ’15-minute heritage programme – round 2’.
Communities across Wales can now apply for a grant of between £3,000 and £10,000 for capital projects that will encourage engagement with local heritage.
The deadline for applications is noon, October 4th, 2021.
This is the second year the programme is running in Wales and it is based on a concept called the 15 minute city where everyone should be able to meet most of their needs within just a short walk or cycle from their home. The aim of the capital grant programme is to support projects that help to connect communities with the heritage on their doorstep so that local people can benefit from it.
The programme can fund outputs such as interpretation boards, small scale capital works, murals or pop up exhibitions and window displays.
The programme can also fund digital outputs such as creating apps or websites.
To compete for funding projects will need to demonstrate how they will offer opportunities for people to get involved through volunteering or participation events – as the Fund requires all projects to work towards our mandatory outcome that a wider range of people will be involved in heritage as a result of our funding.
