Grants and Funding

Our funding priorities

Learn about the funding priorities that guide how we make our grant decisions and funding decisions.

Historic Environment Scotland offers various grants and funding schemes. Individuals and organisations can apply for financial help with projects and works that benefit the historic environment.

Grants are offered to help protect and promote the historic environment, and to train people in skills needed in this area.

Our grants are in high demand, so we can’t always give a grant to every eligible project.

When making grant decisions, we also consider the extent to which a project will:

  • deliver benefits for communities
  • promote public access
  • promote quality
  • develop knowledge and skills
  • build capacity for local heritage management
