Not for profit organisations that are looking to raise up to £40,000 for heritage projects taking place in Scotland, the North West or the South West of England could get up to 25% of additional funding for their projects. Projects could include:
- The collections of objects, books or documents in museums, libraries or archives
- Cultural traditions such as stories, festivals, crafts, music, dance and costumes

To be eligible projects must enable people to learn about heritage, develop their skills, change their attitudes/behaviours or volunteer time.

Projects must be run by not-for-profit organisations with a formal governing document (constitution).
