There is going to be a second round of the Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Scheme.

• It is likely to open in November 2015 and will have a budget of £25m.

• The money will be allocated to the 2016-17 budgets so decisions & offers will be made in May 2016.

• There will be no major changes to the scheme apart from a few tweaks to the application form which should hopefully be improvements

• Guidance for applications should appear on the website in September:

There will be one round of the HLF GPOW programme this month which means that Places of Worship can apply to the HLF GPOW and receive an initial decision and if it’s a rejection they can then apply to the Roof Repair Scheme (unsuccessful applicants can apply again but will have to submit a new application):
