The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) will be running a series of information workshops across the UK, providing more detail about its new ‘Kick the Dust’ programme as well as our other funding for projects involving young people. The nearest pre-application workshop takes place Cardiff on 5 October 2016. More details and booking online.
Kick the Dust is a £10million grants programme for ambitious youth-focused projects that transform how heritage organisations engage with young people. The HLF define young people as those aged 11-25. You will be able to apply for a grant from £500,000 to £1m as part of a consortium, which should include heritage and youth organisations.
The guidance for this initiative will be available from 23 September 2016. There will be a mandatory project enquiry stage followed by an application process in two rounds.
Project enquiries must be submitted by the 2nd December 2016, and the deadline for first-first-around applications will be the 20th February 2017.
