Application process

Making an application

Our application pack explains our criteria for funding, helps you to apply for a grant and give guidance on filling out the application form.

The first step in making an application to NHMF is to submit a project enquiry form - which you will find on the online portal.

Registering to use the portal

You may need to set up a new user account.

If you have previously submitted an expression of interest, project enquiry form or application to the Listed Places of Worship, you will already be registered on our application portal. Use the same email address and password to log in.

Application form

After you have submitted a project enquiry form, we will contact you within 10 days with feedback.

If a full application is recommended, we will release the application form for you to complete.

Permission to start

If your application has been successful, you will be sent a grant contract to fill out and return. You must also complete our Permission to Start form. You should not start your project until you have received our approval through Permission to Start.

Our receiving a grant guidance will help you receive your payment and update us on your progress.
