Since 1976, the AHF has awarded loans with a total value of £124m to nearly 900 projects across the UK and has made more than 1200 individual early project grant offers totalling over £10m.
Our seed grants and loans lever in substantial additional investment. 293 historic building projects have been completed over the last 15 years with seed grants from the AHF totalling just over £3.7m and loans of £46.5m. This has levered in an impressive £402.6m from other sources.
During 2014 the AHF commissioned an evaluation of how its work is perceived by external stakeholders. The results unequivocally demonstrated the crucial role the AHF plays in helping communities find sustainable (and often commercial) uses for locally valued historic buildings.
Organisations that have benefited from an AHF early project grant have a success rate of 60% with their applications to the Heritage Lottery Fund, significantly above the average success rate.
