Assessing your HHF application


We will acknowledge receipt of your full application within 7 days.


The Historic Houses Foundation will ensure you have provided all the information we require and will contact you if there is anything missing or which requires clarification.


When assessing your application we will be looking at the following:


  • Whether it meets our criteria.


  • Whether there is a need or demand for your project, and the scale of benefit to the historic environment and members of the public.


  • How well planned your project is, both during the works and in the longer term. In particular we will be looking at its long-term sustainability.


  • Whether your project costs are realistic and will represent good value for money.


  • How great the financial need of the project is.


  • The timeliness of your project.


  • How your project compares to other applications in terms of priority.
