Current situation:

Funding through the Historic Building Capital Grant Scheme is currently open until 31 January 2019, but only to applicants who previously applied for an implementation grant.

We will update this information as we become aware of any changes or further application rounds.


The Historic Building Restoration Grant aims to help save the iconic historic farm buildings in the English National Parks from falling out of use. Owners of pre-1940 buildings can apply for a grant offering 80% towards the cost of restoration. This can include replacing the roof, weather-proofing the exterior, or other restoration works so that the building can be used again for farming purposes.

This scheme is a pilot and confined to five National Parks –  Peak District, Dartmoor, Lake District, Northumberland, Yorkshire Dales - with £2 million of funding available.

Historic buildings restoration grant is still open for applications, but only if you applied for the implementation grant by 29 June 2018. The closing date for a restoration grant application is 31 January 2019.
