The National Capacity Building (NCB) Programme is aimed at the not-for-profit sector and voluntary organisations based in England to support projects that are national in coverage and promote the conservation, understanding and sustainable management and development of the historic environment.
Funding will begin from 1 April 2020, for projects that run for a maximum of one year.
Targets for support:
- National-level projects and activities that champion, support and enable third-sector organisations and voluntary groups, to reduce heritage at risk and sustainably manage heritage assets by engaging more effectively in the historic environment;
- Support for statutory consultees to provide advice to local authorities to achieve the sustainable management of change in the historic environment;
- Projects which enable national third-sector organisations to reduce their reliance on public funding and to increase their effectiveness in their work with the historic environment.
