Heritage Lottery Fund’s First World War Then and Now Grants Programme
The Heritage Lottery Fund's First World War Then and Now Grants Programme provides grant of between £3,000 and £10,000 for community projects lasting no longer than 2 years which explore, conserve and share the heritage of the First World War.
Projects should enable communities to understand more about the heritage of the First World War and benefit a wide range of people.

- Finding more out about the people listed on war memorials;
- The memories and experiences of people who were affected by the First World War either during the period of the war (1914-1918) or its consequences on family and society following the war; or
- Natural heritage and landscapes affected by the war.
