Review of Heritage Lottery Fund

The Department of Culture, Media and Sport is doing a review of Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), partly to decide what HLF’s funding priorities will be in the next cycle (from 2018).  This will include whether they want to continue to fund natural environment projects and the proportion of funding which goes to natural environment projects, which is relatively low compared to historical/ cultural projects.
